  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan with boiling water. Beat the egg whites with half the sugar until stiff.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the butter, egg yolks and the rest of the sugar for a few minutes until really creamy. Add the melted chocolate. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture, and add the nuts.
  • Put half the mixture into a flan dish and put the other half in the fridge.
  • Bake flan for 25-30 minutes at 170ºC. When the baked half is completely cooled, spread the refrigerated mixture over the top.

    • Could you bake this in individual dishes? I want to do a dessert for a cocktail party and thought smaller would be cuter?
