    I have made this recipe a number of times. Although I was disappointed to see that the calories were more than what was advertised, I still love this dessert. When I need a chocolate fix, this sure does the trick. I make it with very good cocoa so I think that makes a difference in the taste. Will continue to make this for a long time. Thanks for a great recipe.

    I've been making this recipe for years...It's so easy and light....serve with raspberries, or sliced strawberries and it's devine. Not to mention, great for the waist!!! and like others said, it's so simple.

    These were very easy to make and delicious. They are just the right sweetness and have a good texture. I topped with a little Light Cool Whip for some contrast.

    Just one word sums up these souffles: Average. They weren't "bad" but they weren't great either. They had the typical souffle texture and rose perfectly in the oven-- they looked exactly like the picture, but the taste was just average. Not the decadent, chocolately goodness I have experienced at fine dining restaurants (I think I may have been spoiling myself!). Also-- I think it would have been nice to include a side recipe to make the cream that is typically poured into the center of a souffle-- I definitely thought that was a missing touch. I was surprised I didn't care for these as I am a bonafide dessert addict, and pretty much never met a dessert I didn't like (esp. souffles!), but I really thought they were just "blah" and so my equally dessert adoring husband.

    quick and easy with standard kitchen ingredients; always a crowd pleaser.

    Easy and delicious and elegant dessert. I've never made souffles, and was intimidated. But, these were very easy. Like another reviewer, I left the pot with chocolate on the stove too long the second time I made them, and it made the chocolate hard/sticky hard to fold into egg whites. Beware that the actual calorie count is higher than shown in the magazine. For WW members, this is a 3-point dessert, not 1 point. Very disappointing, but I'll keep making it anyway. The guys in my family don't think it is chocolatey enough, so I add chocolate syrup and whipped cream on top of theirs, instead of sugar. The sugar in the ramekin and the powered sugar on top can be cut down - these are very sweet little desserts.

    Really delicious. Nice to have a dessert recipe for 2 that is made with ingredients in the pantry. One of my husband's favorite desserts. Two tips on the egg whites - use room temperature eggs, and a stand mixer is your friend.

    Delicious!! Easy to make, beautiful presentation, and tastes wonderful! It's nice and light, too, which is perfect for an evening dessert when you don't want to feel overly full after a nice dinner. I'd definitely recommend this, and will definitely make it again. (note: didn't have dutch processed cocoa, so used unsweetened cocoa powder and added a pinch of baking soda- it came out lovely!)

    Simple to make and really delicious. The souffles have a great, light texture. I made one small change to the recipe: right before they go into the oven, I push a small piece of chocolate into the middle of each souffle . The dessert still bakes up light and fluffy, but it has a nice, rich center. 2/11/2011

    Magnificent souffles! These turned out so beautifully as the finale to our Easter dinner. I will definitely be making these for special occasions... but they are easy enough for a regular weeknight as wel.

    I truly wish the recipe had been more specific. I will admit to having a few problems. The cake was nothing more than average. I wouldn't serve this to a guest, and I definitely will not be making it again.

    I have made other souffle recipes and this is one of my favorite. It is nice and light, not heavy like souffles can be. I could not believe how fast and easy it was to make these and how well they turned out! I would highly recommend this to anyone.

    Pretty good recipe and very easy to prepare. Texture was that of a souffle however, lacked the strong chocolate flavor. Keeper if you want a dessert and still stick to a low fat, calorie diet. Definitely will make again.

    Semi-bland, despite having added mini chocolate chips and frozen cool whip on top. Nevertheless, there is the novelty of it being quick, easy, and less dishes to clean than a typical, large recipe.

    Holy moly! These were absolutely divine. The best 150 calories I've eaten in a long time. Too bad they go fast! I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder. This is definitely a new favorite! Very light and chocolaty, with just the right amount of sweetness from the powdered sugar. YUM!
