Chocolate Soufflé Recipe

Chocolate Souffle

One of my favorite chocolate dessert recipes is this yummy chocolate soufflé recipe.

Light, creamy and delicious, this luscious chocolate recipe is surprisingly easy to make.

There are a few steps involved but you can see that none of them are difficult or overly time-consuming.

Timing is crucial with a soufflé as they really do need to be served as soon as they come out of the oven. Time out of the oven means a flatter soufflé.

Use the best quality chocolate that you can find, preferably a dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate. The dark chocolate not only gives a richer flavor, it’s healthier too.

Once you see how easy this chocolate soufflé recipe really is, you will put in on the menu often.

It’s a perfect dessert to top off a romantic dinner for two, but the ladies will thank you too if you serve this at your next girls night in.
