#DisneyFamilia: Nuevo Chocoflan at El Artista Hambriento!


One of the new things that you can experience at this year’s Epcot International Festival of the Arts is a dessert at El Artista Hambriento (The Hungry Artist) Food Studio near the Mexico Pavilion.

The Studio features delicious Mexican inspired dishes that includes delicious sopes de chilorio (slow-braised pork marinated in ancho chili paste served on fried corn dough with black beans, queso Oaxaca, crema mexicana and salsa verde), callo de hacha en salsa de jengibre y habanero (two seared scallops with ginger-habanero sauce atop yucca purée) and my favorite chocoflan: a creamy custard and chocolate sponge cake topped with cajeta and hazelnuts.

Here is the recipe for this amazing postre so you can have a little bit of the festival at home!

Epcot International Festival of the Arts takes place through Feb. 25. The festival is included with regular admission.
