Like everything else, chocolate too has a shelf life. If stored properly, it can last as long as a year. But who wants to wait that long?
Use your chocolate in baking. You don’t always need to buy morsels or baking chocolate, most candy bars work fine. Here is a simple recipe that takes only a few minutes to prepare. You will find most, if not all ingredients at hand already. It makes a special treat and your guests would think you have spent hours making it.
Easiest Chocolate Soufflé (serves 4)
¾ cup chocolate (chopped up) You can use semi sweet, milk or dark as you prefer.
4 oz butter
¾ cup sugar
6 tablespoon all purpose flour
In a microwave safe bowl, mix the butter and chocolate. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Gently stir and let cool. In another bowl, combine eggs, sugar and flour. Add the chocolate mixture and mix well. Spray 4 small ramekins with cooking or baking spray. Fill each ramekin with chocolate mixture dividing evenly. Don’t fill more than 2/3rd of the way. Bake in oven at 400F for 20 minutes. The soufflé will rise up. Sprinkle powdered sugar, decorate with berries and serve immediately.
