Caramelized sugar with pumpkin seeds is a common brittle candy found in sweet shops and sometimes sold by street vendors in Mexico. The shiny green hued brittle looks enticing, tastes good, and is really easy to make.
Mmm, flan is probably the most popular of all Mexican desserts, and this coffee-flavored flan, with it’s silky texture, is delicious. Be sure to warm the pan in the oven; this makes it easier to coat the pan with the caramel. The flan needs time to firm up in the refrigerator, so prepare it ahead.
