Hidden Treasure Chocolate Soufflés
A surprisingly simple-to-make chocolate dessert soufflé that is sure to please. Savor the intense flavor of the rich chocolate with a creamy caramel secret treasure hidden in the center.
1/2 cup NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Baking Cocoa
1 large egg, separated
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 Creamy Caramel NESTLÉ® TREASURES®
Powdered sugar for garnish
- Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Spray 2 (6-ounce) ramekins or custard cups with nonstick cooking spray; coat lightly with granulated sugar.
- Microwave morsels, butter and cocoa in medium, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; stir. Microwave at additional 10-second intervals, stirring until smooth. 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 1/4 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 one Nestlé Treasure 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.
