Chocolate lover's paradise. 55% dark chocolate flan with a white chocolate sauce: the texture inside is soft, creamy and non-liquid. The recipe is from Sa. If you like dark chocolate, try increasing the percentage of cocoa, Maybe with a 65%: I promised myself to do it myself next time. Doses of flan are perfect for 8 people using the classic aluminum baking cups, but the sauce is very good: However, you can freeze it and use it later or halve the doses. Is’ a perfect dessert for a big dinner, provided that it is not in too many, because you have to prepare immediately. For this I recommend as dessert for Valentine's day, because it is a blend of sweetness and worth the wait the 15 minutes of preparation (prepared before the oven so that it is already hot) to eat it together.
