Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Granulated sugar
  • ½ cup chocolate morsels, such as NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon baking cocoa, such as NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Baking Cocoa
  • 1 large egg, separated
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 bite-size caramel-filled chocolates
  • Powdered sugar (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray two 6-ounce ramekins or custard cups with nonstick cooking spray; coat lightly with granulated sugar.

Microwave morsels, butter and cocoa in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; Stir. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Stir in egg yolk and vanilla extract.

Beat egg white in small mixer bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in 2 tablespoons granulated sugar until stiff peaks form. Stir one-fourth of egg white mixture into chocolate mixture to lighten. Fold in remaining egg white mixture gently but thoroughly. Spoon into prepared ramekins, filling about 3/4 full. Drop 1 bite-size chocolate into center of each soufflé; press in slightly. Place soufflés on baking sheet.

Bake on center oven rack for 16 to 20 minutes or until puffed and center still moves slightly. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
