Today: Don’t be scared of chocolate soufflé! Yossy has a classic recipe, plus three essential tips for success, to help you tackle the iconic dessert. At its very simplest, chocolate soufflé is made from a base of melted chocolate and egg yolks lightened with meringue and baked until tall and impressive. Room temperature egg whites will whip up tall and strong and will provide structure for the soufflé. For extra richness, use a spoon to make a little pocket in the center of the soufflé and fill it with chocolate sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
