Maybe this is why French women stay so thin? With a dessert like this you can enjoy a lovely chocolate dessert without guilt. Found this recently on the Internet and saving it here for your use as well as my own. Have not tried it yet and look forward to your feedback. (3 pts)

How do I rate this, I'm not sure? To make a souffle takes practice. This being my first time I myself have to say, beside almost wanting to ring my DH neck for getting in my way, came out quite good! For anyone chosing to do a soufflie for the first time I would recomen this one! Thank you for this recipe! We have to make this again....
