Bittersweet Chocolate Souffles
Sweet caramel works in concert with slightly bitter chocolate to give individual souffles a sublime, complex flavor. Served with a thick, creamy caramel sauce poured directly inside, the desserts are sure to garner applause.
Brush the ramekins with butter, and then dust them with sugar to give the souffles a surface to adhere to as they rise. Then tie a parchment collar around each ramekin, extending the paper a few inches above the rim; this will help the desserts keep their shape while they are baking.
