This dark chocolate soufflé has a delicious molten center, and a light, springy exterior—pure chocolatey decadence from the inside out. When we developed the recipe, we added as much chocolate as we possibly could with each iteration, until we landed on the perfect formula. We hydrate the starches by cooking them in hot milk, yielding a stable soufflé with a small bubble structure and an incredibly soft interior.
The best part is, this recipe requires no special tools or skills. Soufflés have a reputation for being particularly finicky, but we think ours is pretty much foolproof. Serve yours with a dusting of powdered sugar and crème anglaise for a sexy dinner on Valentine's Day, or just whip up a batch on a weeknight. Once you master the soufflé, you'll want to make them for any occasion, or no occasion at all.
