Directions

  1. Remove stem and seeds from pepper and discard. Place pepper in a food processor bowl or blender container. Cover; process or blend until ground. Set aside.
  2. In a heavy medium saucepan combine milk, chocolate, 1/3 cup of the sugar, and the nutmeg. Cook over medium heat just to boiling. Remove from heat; set aside for 15 minutes or until slightly cool.
  3. To caramelize remaining sugar, in a heavy 8-inch skillet cook sugar over medium-high heat until it begins to melt. Shake skillet occasionally to heat sugar evenly. Do not stir. Once sugar starts to melt, reduce heat to low. Cook about 5 minutes more or until all of the sugar is melted and golden, stirring as needed with a wooden spoon. Immediately divide caramelized sugar among four 6-ounce custard cups; tilt cups to coat bottoms evenly. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  4. In a large mixing bowl slowly stir chocolate mixture into beaten eggs. Stir in ground pepper and vanilla. Beat until combined, but not foamy. Place custard cups in a 2-quart square baking dish and place on an oven rack. Divide the chocolate mixture evenly among custard cups.
  5. Pour boiling water into the baking dish around custard cups to a depth of 1 inch. Bake in a 325 degree F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a knife inserted near centers comes out clean. Remove flans from baking dish; cool on a wire rack. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  6. To unmold flans, loosen edges with a knife, slipping the point of the knife down the sides. Invert a dessert plate over each flan; turn cup and plate over together. Remove cup. Spoon Passion Fruit Cream on top. If desired, garnish with edible flower petals. Makes 4 servings.
