TIP! To make chocolate curls, hold a block of chocolate (at room temperature) in one hand, drag a vegetable peeler down one, long narrow side, allowing curls to fall directly over flan. Omit liqueur and vodka for a non-alcoholic version. Replace vodka with 1 teaspoon vanilla essence in the topping.
