  3. Melt chocolate in 1/2 cup milk. Add remaining milk. Melt butter and stir in flour and sugar. Add hot chocolate mixture gradually and stir over a low heat until the mixture starts to boil. Remove from the heat. Add rum.
  4. Beat egg yolks.
  5. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the chocolate mixture. Add remainder of chocolate mixture.

  11. To prepare your souffle dish: Butter the souffle dish and sprinkle sugar all around the bottom and sides. Tear off a piece of wax paper large enough to encircle the dish and allow a 2" overlap. Tie it around the outside of the dish with a piece of string. Fold the paper in half length ways. Butter and sprinkle the top third of the paper with sugar.
