  • Beat egg whites until frothy.
  • Beat in sugar gradually, and beat until whites hold stiff peaks.
  • Lighten chocolate mixture with ¼ of the whites, and then gently fold in remaining whites (a few white streaks may show, and this is not a problem).

    I have made this multiple times and it is a great recipe! Mine only took about 20 minutes in my souffle dishes though.

    Very tasty with excellent texture! I used semisweet instead of bittersweet and added 1/4 tsp cream of tartar to the whites just for the heck of it. I've never made a souffle with such a high ratio of whites to yolks, but it turned out great!

    Deliciously light in texture and very chocolatey in taste. I made this is six small souffle dishes and we all enjoyed it a great deal. Thanks Evelyn :) (resubmitted as I forgot the stars)
