Frequently Asked Questions:

Why use dark chocolate in this soufflé recipe?
Dark chocolate, especially our 80.3% variant, provides a rich, intense flavor that really shines in this soufflé. Dark chocolate also has less sugar and is packed with antioxidants, making it a healthier choice.

Can I prepare the soufflé mixture in advance?
It's best to bake soufflés immediately after preparing the mixture as they can lose volume if left to sit. However, you can prepare the chocolate base in advance and fold in the whipped egg whites just before baking.

How do I know when the soufflé is done?
The soufflé should rise above the rim of the ramekins and the top should be set and lightly browned. A skewer inserted into the middle should come out clean.

Can I add flavorings to this soufflé?
Absolutely! Feel free to add a splash of vanilla extract or a sprinkle of orange zest to the chocolate mixture for a flavor twist.

What should I serve with this soufflé?
This dark chocolate soufflé is delicious on its own, but you could also serve it with a dusting of powdered sugar, a dollop of whipped cream, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
