  • Ingredients for Souffle:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 (4 ounce) bittersweet chocolate baking bar, chopped
  • 5 large eggs, separated
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon red liquid food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Powdered sugar
  • Ingredients for Whipped Sour Cream:
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  • Directions for Souffle:
  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of 6 (8 ounce) ramekins with butter. Lightly coat with 3 tablespoons sugar, shaking out excess. Place on baking sheet.
  • 2. Microwave chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 1 minute to 1 minute and 15 seconds, or until melted, stirring at 30-second intervals. Stir in 4 egg yolks, 1/3 cup sugar, and next 3 ingredients. (Discard remaining egg yolk.)
  • 3. Beat 5 egg whites and salt at high speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until foamy. Gradually add 2 tablespoons sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold egg white mixture into chocolate mixture, one-third at a time. Spoon into prepared ramekins. Run tip of thumb around edges of ramekins, wiping clean and creating a shallow indentation around edges of mixture. (This will help the souffles rise.)
  • 4. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 24 minutes or until souffles rise and are set. (A long wooden pick inserted in center will have a few moist crumbs.) Dust with powdered sugar; serve immediately with Whipped Sour Cream.
  • Directions for Whipped Sour Cream:
  • 1. Beat together all ingredients at medium high speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer 45 seconds or just until lightly whipped and pourable. Serve Whipped Sour Cream immediately
