Tonight is Friday and all about desserts or drinks.  Tonight’s post is one of the richest desserts I’ve ever made and OMG so much flavor.  If you love chocolate…hold on to your taste buds ’cause this one is fantastic! 

Chocolate Souffle with Grand Marnier Chocolate Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped fine
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 3 large egg yolks 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
  • 3/4 cup Chocolate Grand Marnier sauce, see below
  • Confectioner’s sugar, for dusting

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Butter 4 individual ramekins and sprinkle with about 1 teaspoon sugar for each ramekin.

Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler set over simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.  Remove from heat.

In a bowl, beat the egg whites with 1/4 cp of the sugar until stiff and glossy.

Wisk the egg yolks into the melted chocolate 1 at a time, add the Grand Marnier, and wisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar.  Fold in the egg whites until thoroughly blended.  Transfer the mixture to the ramekins and place on a baking sheet.  Bake until puffed and somewhat firm, about 20 minutes.  While souffles are baking, prepare the Grand Marnier Chocolate Sauce and keep warm until souffles are ready to serve.

Plate a Souffle, drizzle with chocolate sauce and sprinkle confectioner’s sugar over all.  Enjoy!
