I was looking for a chocolately, yet light dessert to finish a Valentine dinner of Champagne and Orange Steamed Lobster and Mixed Green Salad with Pear, Goat Cheese and Fig Vinaigrette-all CL recipes. It was the perfect end to our meal and was given rave reviews by family and friends. I made one souffle and baked it about 5 minutes longer than the directions stated. Totally delicious and one of my favorite souffles to make!

I agree that these are great to put in the freezer and pop in the oven as you sit down to dinner, but the souffle itself was not as rich and exciting as I had hoped. It was rather bland if I got a bite without the sauce. I am a bigger fan of milk chocolate, so that may be part of the problem for me.

I was looking at other dessert recipes to make for Valentine's Day, but decided on this one because servings had half the calories of the other desserts!!! I'm so glad I made them, they are superb! I used dark chocolate and dark cocoa, but that's just my (our) preference. It was so convenient to make them in the afternoon and wait to bake them when we sat down for dinner. This recipe is a definite keeper, and I can't wait to have friends over and surprise them with something so decadent for dessert ! !

I made these 3 days before our big dinner party and froze them. I used dark chocolate vs. bittersweet chocolate. They went straight from the freezer to the oven and I cooked them for 45 minutes. They were perfect and my company raved about them. Delicious !!!! I love a dessert that I can make in advance but still WOW my friends. :)

I loved the recipe! It wasn't as difficult as I had feared and would not hesitate to make it again! I will make this souffle whenever my family wants something warm and chocolately or if we have company. It isn't too difficult. The chocolate sauce was incredible and the perfect touch to the dessert. May use amaretto next time in the sauce.

OMG.....This was the most delicious dessert. I made this for dinner guests that included kids. EVERYONE went crazy over it. Delicious. I made it exactly as printed, froze it and baked it for about 42 minutes. Everything about the dessert was over the top. I will be using the fudge sauce for any recipe that requires a chocolate sauce. I would like to try it next time with the Amaratto that the other reader recommended...

Despite all the amazing reviews, I was nervous experimenting NYE with this as my featured dessert - first time making it! However, all of the rave reviews were correct -AWESOME!! I made it exactly as printed the night before and froze it. I found a bttersweet peanut free bittersweet dark chocolate at Fresh Market (one of my diner's has peanut allergies so I used Scharffenberger chocolate). I used 1% milk since its what I had at home. I made the sauce the day of the dinner and reheated it before serving. I might double the sauce just in case next time I make it because I was worried it wasn't enough... however, everyone raved about it. I served it with vanilla ice cream. Honestly, how can you go wrong with such a rich tasting dessert that was really quite easy to make!?!?

I didn't seem to love it as much as everyone else did apparently. I thought it took far too long to make. The timing has to be just right for almost everything and I didn't think they tasted amazing for all the effort.

This was very good and pretty easy to make. The chocolate sauce was excellent as well. Next time I might make it in a big souffle bowl instead of individual as I wanted more after I was done with the first one!. I also froze some of the bowls to use at a later date and they also turned out well
