Another recipe for chocolate souffles

3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine
1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch Process cocoa powder
3/4 cup plus 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup boiling water
2 egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
8 egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
6 dark chocolate kisses or 6 (1/2-ounce) pieces dark chocolate
2 to 3 teaspoons powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and position the oven rack in the bottom third of the oven. Spray the inside of 6 (10 ounces) ramekins, or oven-proof baking cups, with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with a little sugar to coat smoothly.

Mix chopped chocolate, cocoa, and 3/4 cup of the sugar in a large bowl. Add boiling water and whisk. When chocolate is completely melted, whisk in egg yolks and vanilla. Gradually add the flour, whisk properly and set aside.

Next, combine egg whites with cream of tartar in a medium mixing bowl. Set the mixer to medium speed and beat until soft peaks form. Sprinkle in the remaining sugar and beat on high speed until stiff. Be careful not to beat until it's too dry.

Then, fold about a third of the chocolate mixture into the egg whites. Keep folding the remaining chocolate mixture in 2 additions. Pour the batter into prepared ramekins.

Place 1 chocolate kiss or half ounce of dark chocolate into the center of each souffle before putting in the oven. Set the oven to 10 to 12 minutes or until the top has formed a nice crust. Remove from oven and dust with powdered sugar. Your chocolate souffle is now ready to be enjoyed!
