- Fold the whipped egg whites into the chocolate mixture in 2 parts: Half of the mixture to loosen/lighten the base and the remaining gently fold in lightly making sure to incorporate well.
- With a pastry brush, coat soufflé dish with whole butter.
- Place 1 TBL of sugar in ramekin dish, coat and discard excess sugar.
