Chocolate Souffle Recipes; One with Cocoa Powder and Others

Anything chocolate, chocolate souffle recipes, puddings or any of the wonderful chocolate cake recipes can be a great ending to a special meal. Souffles are a favorite dessert among chocolate lovers. There has been a lot of discussion lately about just what is a souffle. How is a chocolate souffle recipe different from chocolate mousse? Originally a souffle was always baked and a mousse was either frozen or refrigerated without baking. Since then, what are sometimes also called souffle recipes have been developed that set up in the refrigerator generally using gelatin as the congealing agent.

Like making a mousse recipe, chocolate souffle recipes contain beaten egg whites or stiffly whipped cream (or both) to make the dessert light and airy. A baked soufflé generally has a crust like top and more of a cake texture than creamy mousse; it is best served right from the oven. Many well known better restaurants, known for their soufflés, have their guests order the soufflé when they order their entrée; it is freshly prepared and baked and ready when they are ready for dessert. They are rich and very delicious right from the oven. Despite what many people think these desserts are not hard to make; this is why they can be totally prepared while diners enjoy their meals. The problem with both soufflés and mousse is that they do not hold their light and airy texture for long; these are not desserts to be stored in the refrigerator for long.

An extremely easy chocolate dessert comes in the form of a chocolate soufflé omelet recipe. When you learn how to use chocolate you will find a type of chocolate for any taste you are trying to achieve. Dark cocoa powder or melted chocolate is usually used in dessert soufflés. In the chocolate omelet recipe below a chocolate flavored drink mix is used which is a milder chocolate. A richer flavor is accomplished by making a cocoa recipe or one made with melted chocolate.
