Flantastic

As promised. Yesterday's Mexican Fiesta was capped off with this yummy and super simple dessert...


Shelly's Flan

2 Tablespoons of Bird's Custard Powder
2 cups Milk
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Caramel Torani Syrup

Mix powder into a smooth paste with a little of the milk. Heat the remaining milk to almost boiling and pour onto the custard mixture. Return the mix to the pan and heat till thickened (it will bubble). Remove from heat and mix Sugar Free Syrup in. Pour mixture into 4/4-oz ramekins or custard cups. Here's what I use. Chill for at least 2 hours in fridge.

Top chilled custards with Sugar Free Land o Lakes Whipped Cream and a drizzle of Kahlua Sauce.

Kahlua Sauce

2 Tablespoons Smuckers Sugar Free Caramel Topping
2 Tablespoons Kahlua Coffee Liqueur (yep booze)

Mix together. Drizzle over chilled custard. Serve immediately.

Yes, this dessert has booze in it. I use the real deal. You can leave it out I suppose but it's just 2 Tablespoons divided by 4 desserts. Even this lightweight RNYer can't catch a buzz off of that little. I know some Dr's are the never again types when it comes to alcohol and you should always follow your medical posse's plan. So for those of you that have those Dr's "Just say no." Move along now. Nothing to see here. For everyone else... enjoy but just don't eat all 4 in one sitting and then drunk dial me OK.
