Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Cook 3/4 cup sugar and water in saucepan on medium heat 7 min. or until mixture is golden brown and of syrup-like consistency, gently swirling pan every few minutes. (Do not stir.) Pour into 9-inch round pan; cool slightly.
Blend rompope, coconut milk, Neufchatel, eggs, cinnamon and remaining sugar in blender until smooth; stir in 1/4 cup coconut. Pour over syrup in pan. Cover; place in larger shallow pan. Add enough water to larger pan to come halfway up side of 9-inch pan.
Bake 50 min. or until knife inserted 1 inch from edge of flan comes out clean. Remove flan from water bath; cool completely. Refrigerate 4 hours. Loosen flan from side of pan; unmold onto plate just before serving. Sprinkle with remaining coconut.
You'll know it's a special occasion when you get to enjoy a serving of this delicious flan.
To soften any caramelized sugar remaining in bottom of pan, dip pan in hot water to soften sugar before spooning over the flan.
Spiked with rum, rompope is the Mexican version of eggnog. Look for it in the liquor section of Hispanic grocery stores or larger supermarkets.
Substitute ground cinnamon for the ground Mexican cinnamon (canela).
Substitute regular eggnog for the rompope.
