Leche flan is a decadent dessert that Filipinos love to indulge in during holiday parties or simply as a quick snack for merienda. It’s already good as it is: smooth and creamy and just sweet enough to cleanse your palate after a good meal. But what if the leche flan is given another twist and transformed into another type of dessert? We’ve compiled a list of leche-flan-centric desserts that you should try ASAP. They’re definitely still as good as the OG leche flan — or maybe even better!
