Chocolate Souffle

   Hooah! I made a souffle and now feel like a hero. This is my first attempt to cook it and I'm really glad that everything is OK (and the products didn't go to the rubbish basket!).
   I decided to begin with the chocolate one because I'm crazy about chocolate and everything connected with it. Must admit that this souffle is one of the best chocolate goodness. The dessert is soft and airy inside, but with crispy crust sprinkled with cocoa powder. It is so magic to break the velvet crust with a spoon and spoon up the smoothy filling.
   The souffle melts in your mouth immediately leaving the rich dark chocolate flavor.

   You need only plain ingredients to get a perfect result. But remember: the products must be fresh and good-quality. It is prettier to cook the souffle into small pots - the flavor seems to be better but you can use one big baking dish - I promise it will be the main hero of the dining table.
   And one more thing: so charming to watch how the souffle becomes higher and higher in the oven.
