Chocolate Soufflé with Red Wine Mulberry Sauce is an indulgent and special sweet treat that everyone will love.
Stop! Before you get intimidated by the idea of making a soufflé! I promise it's actually super duper easy! To be honest even if it flops a little, it'll still be darn delicious.
It's Valentines Day tomorrow and if there are two things that scream Valentines, it's gotta be wine and chocolate. Am I right? And yes you can still have both those things on your own. I'm all for taking yourself out on a date 😉
I used some of my favourite ingredients to make this Easy Chocolate Soufflé with Red Wine Mulberry Sauce including, Honest Chocolates 70% Organic Dark Chocolate and Backsbergs Merlot and Mulberry Preserve.
To make this Easy Chocolate Soufflé is as the name says...easy! Firstly, you melt the chocolate and the butter together (if you're anything like me this is a job for the microwave, we're keeping it easy here people). Then you add the egg yolks and vanilla to the melted chocolate. Give it a good whisk here to make sure you don't end up with chocolate flavoured scrambled eggs. Meanwhile, beat your egg whites with a little sugar and cream of tartar until you have stiff peaks. Then we're gonna fold that into your delish choc mixture and bam! Guys, I told you it was easy.
This chocolate soufflé can be eaten on it's own, but trust me once you add the red wine mulberry sauce there's no going back! I might start adding this to anything and everything... don't judge me!
Without further adieu... here's the recipe that's definitely going to make it's way into someones heart. It's definitely made its way into mine, and hope you love it as much as I do!
