  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Place 1 cup of the sugar in small heavy saucepan; cook on medium heat until sugar is melted and deep golden brown in colour, stirring constantly. Immediately pour into 9-inch round cake pan; tilt pan to evenly cover bottom of pan with syrup. Set aside.
  • Place evaporated milk and cream cheese in blender container; cover. Blend until smooth. Add remaining 1 cup sugar, the eggs, salt, melted chocolate, liqueur and orange peel; cover. Blend well. Pour over syrup in pan; cover with foil. Place in larger shallow baking dish that is filled with enough hot water to come halfway up outside of cake pan.
  • Bake 50 min. to 1 hour or until knife inserted near centre comes out clean. Carefully remove cake pan from water bath; cool completely. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Unmold just before serving by inverting pan onto serving platter. Store in refrigerator.

Chocolate Curls

Warm 1 oz. chocolate by microwaving it on HIGH for a few seconds or just until you can smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate piece steadily, then draw a vegetable peeler slowly over the flat bottom of the chocolate piece, allowing a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom to make long, delicate curls. Repeat with remaining chocolate piece.

Citrus Curls

Use a vegetable peeler or citrus zester to remove long thin strips of orange peel. Roll into curls, then add to top of flan just before serving for a colourful garnish.
