- Preheat oven to 350° F.
- Combine 1 cup sugar and water in a large pan over medium heat. Bring water and sugar to a boil and swirl around mixture, moving pan around by the handle; do not stir. Remove from heat as soon as caramel mixture turns amber in color.
- Pour caramel into a 10-inch mold. Carefully turn mold on its sides to coat bottom evenly. Set aside.
- Place eggs, milks, cocoa powder, and remaining sugar in a blender container. Blend until all ingredients have mixed thoroughly; about 30 seconds.

- Carefully place roasting pan with mold in oven and bake for 73-75 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool in roasting pan with water.
- Remove mold from roasting pan, cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate 4 hours to overnight.
- Run a small knife around flan edges. Gently shake mold to loosen chocolate flan. Place a large plate over mold and quickly turn upside down for flan to drop onto plate.
