For Cinco de Mayo my Mexican Cheesecake Flan Brownie is the perfect marriage of two wonderful desserts. Luscious chocolate brownie topped with creamy flan! Mexican desserts are not always easy to come up with even though many great recipes exist.
My new recipe for Mexican Cheesecake Flan Brownie is a combination of two great Mexican desserts. Brownie and Flan.
For the brownie I use a box of Ghirardelli dark chocolate brownie mix with the addition of cinnamon, Mexican chili powder and cinnamon chips. The flan is also a very simple recipe using only five ingredients.
I also made some hard caramel glass as a decorative addition, but I think the dish would be great with a simple caramel sauce. Enjoy this with my other Cinco de Mayo recipes, Mexican Black Bean Dip and Mexican Ground Turkey Sopes.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
