Ingredients: (Yields 2 Soufflés)

Butter                                    2 T

All Purpose Flour                  1 T

COLD Milk                              ¼ Cup

Salt                                        A Pinch

Cayenne Pepper                A Pinch

Milk Chocolate Chips         4 oz

Egg Yolks                              2

Egg Whites                           4

Cream of Tartar                  A Pinch

White Sugar                         2 T

Preheat your oven to 425 Degrees


  • Brush soufflé dishes with soft butter and place a table spoon of sugar in each.  Move the dish around to evenly coat the bottom and sides with sugar and discard the excess.

  • Over a double boiler on low heat place the chocolate to slowly melt.

  • In a separate pan over low heat add 2 tablespoons butter and 1 tablespoon flour and mix until the flour is incorporated. Add 1/4 cup of milk and stir.

  • Once milk becomes just past nappe consistency (slightly thick) add to your melted chocolate and stir together.

  • Add 2 egg yolks and a pinch of salt and a smaller pinch of cayenne pepper (only we should know it’s in there).

  • Place the 4 egg whites in a bowl and whisk, slowly adding the 2 tbl of sugar until soft peaks. You are making a meringue.

  • Remove the chocolate mixture from the stove and add about 40% of your meringue to the chocolate mixture. Fold in gently until incorporated.

  • Add the remaining meringue and fold in until just incorporated. Do not overmix and breakdown the meringue.

  • Divide the soufflé batter between the two ramekins filling about 80% full.

  • Bake in a 425 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes until the soufflé has risen considerably and the top is firm.

  • Gently remove and ENJOY!
