Hot Chocolate Souffle

I found this recipe a few weeks ago from Taste of Home, and knew as soon as I saw it I needed to make it. I love Taste of Home recipes, they are simple, tried and true recipes and most of the time, I am not disappointed by them.

Over the weekend, we had a little heat wave. It was in the 60's and sunny. Of course everyone in TN was out and about, wearing their capri's and flip flops and planning to cook out for dinner. We had some of our best friends over on Saturday for burgers and I made these for dessert, the recipe says that it will serve 12 and that was one to feed everyone here. While the guys were at the grill, I melted the chocolate and butter, mixed all the other ingredients together, put them in the ramekins and baked while we ate. These were the perfect dessert for the evening. The marshmallows got all toasty, my favorite part, and we all decided that next time I will add crumbled graham crackers and more marshmallows and make it a smore souffle. :)

Just a work of warning, make sure that you eat them immediately, or they will deflate and the marshmallows fall through. Still tastes the same, just a little flat!

Hot Chocolate Souffle

1 cup butter, cubed
8 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
4 eggs
4 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups plus 2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
1 cup mini marshmallows
4 1/2 tsp cinnamon-sugar

Grease the bottoms only of twelve 6 oz ramekins; set aside. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Set aside

In a large bowl, beat eggs and yolks on high speed on 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating until thick and lemon-colored, about 5 minutes. Beat in chocolate mixture. Combine flour and baking powder; beat into egg mixture just until combined.

Fill prepared ramekins half full; sprinkle with marshmallows. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar; serve immediately. Refrigerate leftovers...if there are any!

Mmmmm, s'mores souffle sounds like a brillant idea, April. Much better than just hot chocolate souffle! :)

How cute! These look amazing and I love that you had then after BBQ outside. I also think the graham crackers would be amazing!

Oh wow. Looks delish the way it is, but I'm afraid the S'mores version would send me right over the edge!

The weather was sooo nice. We were enjoying it too!
