Oooh weee its hot outside.
If you live in Texas, you know this summer is going to be killer. With the hot summer days sometimes, you need a cool yummy snack. Who has heard of flan? It’s not custard, it is not jello but maybe a combination of both? All I know is that it is heavenly and once you make it you will fall in love with the flavors.
I know there are many recipes on how to make it from scratch but if you don’t have time for all of that then just do it my favorite way; using an instant flan. I love using Jell-O brand Flan, in my opinion this is the best as it will not be too sweet but just right.
I used 4 packs of flan as I was making a large portion to share with my family. For each package you need 2 cups of milk, I personally use whole milk as I feel like it makes the flan taste richer. Place the milk in a pan and bring to a boil. Once the milk is starting to boil, turn the stove off and stir in the packages of flan, the milk will turn a soft yellow.
Now in your container glass container (you can use any container that holds hot liquids) squeeze all 4 small packages of caramel. Then add the hot milk that is now yellow into the glass container. I would suggest you waiting for the milk to cool off for a bit before placing in the fridge. Let it sit in the fridge for at least two hours, then you’re ready to dig in.
I promise this will be your go-to dessert.
P.S. you can also do individual glass containers if you want to get fancy and impress any guests you might have.
