This is a fast and easy dessert to finish off a spicy meal or add an exotic twist on a classic dessert. It's made from a mix, but no one will ever know! I use Dr. Oetker brand dessert mix, but any brand will do, so long as the box yields 3-4 individual servings. When I have dinenr guests, I like to make this ahead of time so I I can enjoy dinner without having to run back to the kitchen to prepare dessert. Use whole spices so you can skim the spices out of the custard and keep the smooth creamy texture and color of the individual flans. Follow the directions for whatever kind of mix you use, and just be sure to add the spices to the milk as soon as possible to get maximum flavor infused into the custard mix.
