No, not flan. This is flavored like Mexican hot chocolate! The addition of cream cheese makes it even richer & creamier. **HINT: my stand mixer did not combine the ingredients enough for my liking. I recommend a whisk or hand held electric mixer where you have more control.** Using cream cheese makes it a bit thicker and will hold up the mini chocolate bits. When they melt they give a bit of a marbled effect. :) Developed for RSC#15. Enjoy!

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Beat together eggs & cream cheese until very well combined. Add brown sugar through salt & beat until very well combined. Add milk & combine thoroughly.
  3. Pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle the top with the mini chocolate bits.
  4. Place in a larger dish & add water to a depth of 1/2 way up the sides of the dish with the custard.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. It's ok if it's a little wobbly in the center. Depending on your oven, it may take a few minutes more (5-10).

I love flan but this is just as good!! A floating layer of chocolate over a creamy custard base - totally yum. I admit I did add more chocolate chips but it was worth it. Made for ZWT 8-Food of the Gods Challenge.
