Chocolate Mint Souffles Recipe

These delectable little desserts are fancy, utterly foolproof and a family favorite recipe for decades. Give them a try! —Ruth Lee, Troy, Ontario
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon plus 4 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Dash salt
  • 1/3 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/8 teaspoon mint extract
  • Confectioners' sugar


  • 1. Separate eggs. Place whites in a small bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Place yolks in another bowl; set aside.
  • 2. Coat two 10-oz. ramekins or custard cups with cooking spray and lightly sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar; place on a baking sheet and set aside.
  • 3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 2 tablespoons sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
  • 4. Remove from the heat; stir in chocolate chips and extract until chips are melted. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to the bowl, stirring constantly. Cool slightly.
  • 5. Beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form. With a spatula, fold a fourth of the egg whites into chocolate mixture until no white streaks remain. Fold in remaining egg whites until combined.
  • 6. Transfer to prepared ramekins. Bake at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until tops are puffed and centers are almost set. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 servings.
