    Chocolate Expresso Souffles

    ANGELINA ROGERS from AKRON, OH

    I made these for my 55th birthday, which is today. I wanted something different and special. Being diabetic, the sugar was easily swapped out with Splenda Brown Sugar. I'm not a big fan of coffee, but the chocolate takes on a deeper, richer taste with the addition of the coffee. My husband was very pleased, as he loves chocolate and coffee. My birthday was great, and so was the dessert.

    Chocolate Souffles

    Priscilla-Jane Raykoske from WALLINGFORD, VT

    How decadent are these little treasures? My friends were so impressed! Anyone can pull this recipe off without a big fuss. I would make these over and over again. A dessert that you might find in an upscale restaurant, but easy to do right at home. Try it. You won't regret it!

    Individual Chocolate Souffles

    Sharon Creech from HILLSBORO, OH

    I made a few changes to the recipe, I used whipping cream in place of the milk, and served the souffles with white chocolate raspberry sauce. I served this to my girlfriends, being chocoholics, they went a little crazy and we all had a wonderful time and left the party with smiles on there faces. Thanks again for the many wonderful recipe ideas.

    Carol Nardello from Kailua, HI

    I prepared this last minute today and used 2% milk instead of Evaporated. It tasted excellent but, deflated very quickly. Serve it directly from the oven for optimum inflation.

    splenda

    judy from arizona

    I substituted splenda for the sugar (except when oiling ramekins--i used sugar there...) and these turned out perfect. i also used five 8-oz ramekins vs the eight 6 oz ones called for in recipe...worked great!
