This is a Brazilian dessert...it is super popular in Brazil. The brigadeiros (you can find a few of these recipes already posted on this site) are a smaller version of this dessert. This is the bigger version....a cross between flan and chocolate pudding. You have to bake this in baine marie...meaning the baking pan must be submerged into a larger pan (I use a turkey roasting pan) filled about 1/5 full of boiling water. Then you place the whole thing in the oven to bake. This creates a more delicate baking process.
