Mexican chocolate is made from dark, bitter chocolate mixed with sugar, cinnamon, and sometimes nuts. The end result is a "grainy" less smooth product. Chocolate is frequently purchased in "disks" although it is also available in bars and syrups. Two Mexican chocolate brands widely available in the US are Ibarra and Abuelita. Look for them in the Hispanic section of your supermarket.
The key to traditional Mexican hot chocolate is the tool designed to make it frothy - a round, notched, wooden whisk called a molinillo but you can place it in a blender to get it nice and frothy. Or use an imersion blender to get it frothy.
This is a romantic, seductive, rich, lush and thick, soft, chocolate covered berries! NOT a bite and crunch covered berries! Great for feeding your LOVED ONES. I've also cut a slice into the strawberry and put it onto a rim of my recipe #49905. You can decorate the top of a decadent chocolate cake with them.
Chocolate lovers delight. YUM! Faretti biscotti liqueur is what I used in this chocolate layer cake and the ganache. This liqueur is excellent with hints of citrus, nuts, and fennel. With Marcona Spanish almond that are salted. Salt and Chocolate complement each other nicely.

This dark, decadent, and luxurious chocolate souffle is easy to make and can be the perfect finale to a romantic dinner.
Use the best quality dark chocolate.
This can be doubled.
Do adjust if doubling or trip;ling the recipe. I made triple the recipe and it did take 20 - 25 minutes to bake.
My photo is of leftovers that I made the day before for 6. I did warm the leftovers in the microwave oven topped with cream. We did have berries the day of serving and is a must!
