Erwan Cooks Cheesy Filipino Desserts (White Rabbit, Mango Shake, Tikoy, Leche Flan)

Erwan Heussaff is experimenting with an ingredient that is beloved by all: cheese. We are cooking  different dishes to test if cheese goes well with mango sago, tikoy, leche flan, and White Rabbit which is one of our favorite childhood candies. 

This video is sponsored by Emborg. The secret to our creamy dishes and perfect cheese pulls is because of our favorite products from Emborg like the Emborg Full Cream Milk, Emborg Red Cheddar, and the Emborg Shredded Mozzarella. Now the question is, Does it Cheese?
