1/3 Photos of Dark Chocolate Souffle
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!
