Chocolate Souffle

A souffle can be difficult to make, but in this recipe it is foolproof. The traditional bechamel requires constant stirring and instead, this recipe used sweetened condensed milk. Instead of buttering and sugaring the ramekins, I coat them with non stick spray. The chocolate chips eliminate the chopping and they melt quickly in the microwave instead of a bain marie. The result, however, is just as impressive!
Its is impirtant not to open the oven until they are ready or the souffles will deflate. Also, if serving as a dessert, plan the cooking time as they should be served immediately.

Ingredients
1 cup bitter sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
3 egges, separated
2 tbs icing (confectioners) sugar.

Method.
Pre-heat oven to 375F
Coat 4 ramekins with non stick spray with flour
In a microwave safe bowl, heat chocolate chips in 20 second bursts, stirring until just melted - about 1-2 mins.
Remove from microwave and whisk in the condensed milk.
Add 2 egg yolks until blended (save other yolk for another use)
In another bowl, using an electric mixer, whisk the 3 egg whites until very stiff.
Add 1/3 of the mixture to the chocolate mixture and whisk gently untill incorporated.
With a rubber spatula, gently fold in the remaining egg white mixture until just incorporated.
Divide among the ramekins.
Sift icing sugar on top
Bake for 11-13 minutes or until the top rises about an inch over the rim.
DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN UNTIL READY!
Serve immediately.
