Individual Chocolate Espresso Souffles

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Steve_G

These delicate chocolate souffles have a slightly creamy center and a hint of coffee flavor. From Nestles. Very low fat for a Souffle.

OK, so the souffles collapsed but I think that was due to all the activity in my kitchen rather than the recipe. Great tasting recipe and surprisingly easy.
