We love this delicious and comforting dessert that reminds us of our childhood. At Petitchef, we were all addicted to the classic ultra creamy vanilla flan, but that was without having tried this chocolate version! We guarantee that it will be impossible for you to take just one slice ;-)

Decorating tip:
For a more gourmet version, you can grate chocolate shavings before serving.

Which dough to choose?
We used shortcrust pastry but puff pastry is also perfect. You can also use shortcrust pastry.

Which milk to take?
We recommend whole milk rather than semi-skimmed, the flan will be even smoother.

What dark chocolate to choose?
For chocolate lovers, 70% baking chocolate will be the good option. Dark chocolate with 50% cocoa is also very good.

Milk or white chocolate?
You can also use white chocolate or milk chocolate for variety and a less strong chocolate taste. In this case we recommend that you only put 1/2 cup (100 gr) of sugar in the recipe, these chocolates are sweeter than dark chocolate.

How do I store my chocolate pastry flan?
You can keep your flan in the refrigerator for a few days.
