Chocolate Mint Souffles for Two

Recieved this recipe from Taste of Home and couldn't wait to try it. I love that they only served two so perfect for DH and me when I wanted something special for just us. They came together easy, were light, fluffy and oh so chocolate. It calls for mint extract but I didn't have that so just used vanilla and it was still good. Think it'd be really good with the mint and maybe a little mint leave as garnish.

Tasty, but the souffles looked a little lost in my larger ramekins, and I would prefer a smaller serving. I want to make these again using dutch-processed cocoa and confectioners' sugar, and use my stand mixer instead of my hand-held mixer. In the name of science, of course!

Rich and delightful! These were easy and delicious. My ramekins were a little too small, so I split it into three, and that worked great. Thanks for sharing! ZWT7
