Chocolate Souffle…it’s one of those magically wonderful desserts. It’s just rich, chocolaty, sweet goodness that melts in your mouth. It’s pretty easy to make, and it’s worth it!

 

Here’s what you’ll need: 

6-10 oz. ramekins
2 Tbsp. butter-, plus more to coat your ramekin
1/3 cup sugar, plus more to coat your ramekin
8 oz. milk chocolate chips
6 eggs, room temperature, separated
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
Confectioners sugar (to sprinkle on top after your souffles come out of the oven)

Here’s how to make it:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (place your rack in the middle)

Butter and then sprinkle a layer of sugar into your ramekins- bottom and all over the sides too

Melt the butter and chocolate chips either in the microwave or in a double boiler – let cool slightly

Whisk in the egg yolks, vanilla, and pinch of salt

In another bowl beat the 6 egg whites for about 30 seconds then add cream of tarter and salt

Continue beating until you have soft peaks and then add your sugar a little at a time. Continue beating until you have stiff peaks (when you pull the mixer out of the egg whites and they stay standing up)

Fold the egg whites a little at a time into the chocolate mixture-  Do it slowly and until it’s all combined

5. Transfer the mixture to the ramekins (1/2 – 3/4 of the way full) and bake for 15-16 minutes …only

6. Take them out of the oven, sprinkle with a good amount of confectioners sugar and serve immediately, because they will deflate quickly!
