Sexy Hot Chocolate Soufflé for Valentine’s Day

Hot Chocolate Soufflé

A Valentine’s Day Hot Chocolate Soufflé will bring a bright smile to the face of your valentine and will be sure to impress!  There are many different kinds of soufflé recipes; one is more exciting and challenging than the next, but in my opinion, no soufflé can top a perfectly made chocolate soufflé.

Chocolate soufflés are a long-time standard on many Valentine’s Day menus. The question is why?  The answer is pretty simple- chocolate and Valentine’s Day go hand in hand.  Soufflés take a certain degree of skill, technique, and love to make. Yes, love!  If you’ve ever made a soufflé, you’ll understand that it’s a delicate process.

Hot Chocolate Soufflé has completely risen.

Soufflés, just like true love, can’t be rushed.  They both require time and an understanding of the delicate process that helps to make a stable and lasting end result.  If the building blocks of a relationship are rushed or not given enough attention, the relationship most often will fall apart.  The same holds true for a soufflé.  When a soufflé is rushed and little attention to the technique of the recipe is given, the soufflé will surely collapse.  However, there is nothing to fear, as long as you carefully follow the recipe and pay attention to the technique tips.  And most importantly, don’t rush it.  All good things take a little time to develop. 

So, this Valentine’s Day why not show your valentine how much you value the relationship you’ve built or are building together, with a Hot Chocolate Soufflé!  

The soufflé recipe below is from a dear friend’s Mom, who was a fabulous cook.  I’ve admired her recipe for a long time. The recipe is foolproof!  It quickly became my go-to chocolate soufflé recipe. I’ve been making it now for years and it is always fabulous.  Now, I’m sharing it with you, to help spark up your Valentine’s Day!

Heart-shaped soufflé for Valentine’s Day.

Whether I make this soufflé at home or in a professional setting, I like to serve it with a Red Wine Raspberry Sauce (recipe below). Oh yes!  It’s sinfully delicious too and takes this soufflé to a whole other level of sexy deliciousness for Valentine’s Day.  Once you begin eating the soufflé, you can always pour more sauce on top and add a dollop of whipped cream too. Enjoy!
