  • Cooking Method: Baking
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 60 minutes
  • Cuisine Type: Latin American


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the granulated sugar and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and turns golden brown (about 10 minutes).
  3. Immediately pour the caramelized sugar into a 9-inch round cake pan, tilting to coat the bottom evenly. Set aside.
  4. In a blender, combine the sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, whole milk, eggs, egg yolks, melted chocolate, vanilla extract, and salt.
  5. Blend until smooth and well-mixed, about 1 minute.
  6. Pour the chocolate mixture over the caramel in the cake pan.
  7. Place the cake pan in a larger roasting pan. Fill the roasting pan with hot water halfway up the sides of the cake pan.
  8. Bake for 60 minutes, or until the center is set and a knife inserted comes out clean.
  9. Remove the flan from the water bath and let cool to room temperature. Then chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  10. To serve, run a knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the flan. Invert onto a platter, gently shaking to release.


  • Swap the semi-sweet chocolate chips for dark chocolate for a more intense flavor.
  • Add a splash of coffee liqueur for a mocha twist.
  • Top with fresh berries, whipped cream, or a sprinkle of sea salt for added flair.
  • Use silicone molds for individual flans to make serving a breeze.
  • Pro tip: Make sure your caramel isn’t too dark to avoid a bitter flavor.
