Chocolate Souffle

Chocolate dish #3: Heaven!

Yes, as you can see, I did get new ramekins, and I love them! If you don’t own any, I would highly recommend going and getting some!:)

So if you’ve never had this dish, then you are missing out! Chocolate souffle is actually really easy to make and is super yummy! It’s basically just a really moist and airy chocolate cake, that gets REALLY puffed up when you bake it.

This dish is perfect for my family because we really aren’t big chocolate cake fans, (I know, we’re insane!) We like it, don’t get me wrong, but find that sometimes it’s just too rich. This souffle is just the right combination for us!

Chocolate Souffle (

  • 3/4 tbsp. butter
  • 6 tbsp. sugar
  • 4 1/2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped 
  • 1 1/2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 6 egg whites
  • handful of chocolate chips

Butter the ramekins and sprinkle them with 1 tsp. sugar. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler, and whisk in the egg yolks and heavy cream.

Beat the egg whites in a mixer fitted with the balloon whip for about a minute, then add the rest of the sugar and beat for 30-45 seconds. Gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and pour into the ramekins. Top with the chocolate chips and bake at 350 degrees for 22-26 minutes, or until you stick a toothpick into the center and it comes out clean. Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top and serve immediately. Enjoy!
