How to cook Chocolate Leche Flan
Chocolate Leche Flan Recipe is the famous Filipino caramel custard with a twist, we added chocolate to give it a different flavor from the traditional Leche Flan, and we are happy with the result.
Chocolate creates more variety of flavors in your mouth, creating a symphony of taste each bite. This Choco Leche Flan is already our second Leche Flan with a different character and taste. The other one is Lechetin or Leche Flan with Gelatin.
So if you can’t decide what dessert to make for your family, or what sweet dish to give as food-to-share in your party, then this is an excellent choice since it isn’t a typical dessert a lot of people have tasted. But you can be assured, and they would absolutely love it.
