Ingredients

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

unsweetened cocoa powder

1 Tbsp

all-purpose flour

1 Tbsp

sugar

3 Tbsp, granulated, divided

low fat chocolate milk

3 Tbsp

egg white(s)

1 large

powdered sugar

½ tsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat two 6 oz ramekins with cooking spray.
  2. In a small saucepan, whisk together cocoa, flour and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar; set over medium heat. Add milk; cook until smooth, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; cool for about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk egg white until soft peaks start to form. Slowly add remaining tablespoon granulated sugar and continue beating until soft peaks form. Fold cooled chocolate mixture into egg whites, a little at a time, until no white streaks appear.
  4. Pour batter into prepared ramekins; bake until set and tops look slightly dry, about 14 to 16 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar; serve warm. Yields 1 soufflé per serving.
Notes
Do not open oven until soufflés are done. Cold air can cause them to sink.This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for larger gatherings.
