Hello, Chocolate Lovers! The Cook & Kitchen Staff are celebrating Valentines Day by offering you fourteen of our most delicious chocolate-coated, cocoa-concocted recipes from our Chocolate Lovers Collection. Todays recipe is an elegant finisher for your Valentines Day meal. The Kitchen Staff topped their Chocolate Souffl?s with a creamy caramel sauce. If you would like to do the same, simply simmer 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup water, and 6 tablespoons of light corn syrup in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Boil the mixture until a golden caramel is formed. Remove the pan from the heat and add 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Blend and cool before serving, because the sauce thickens as it cools. Your caramel sauce will store for up to 3 weeks refrigerated. Pre-heat the oven to 375-F degrees. Butter 6 ramekins and coat with sugar, tapping out any excess sugar accumulated in the crease of the ramekins. Chop the chocolate and reserve. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the cream and gently bring the mixture to a boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the chopped chocolate, stirring until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in the egg yolks, one at a time. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar using an electric mixer. Add a pinch of salt and continue to beat the egg whites until they hold stiff peaks. Gradually add the sugar, continuing to beat the egg whites until the sugar is just combined. Stir one-fourth of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and then fold the remaining egg whites into the chocolate, gently but thoroughly combining the two mixtures. Divide the souffl? mix among the ramekins. Run the tip of a knife around the edges of the souffl?s to aid rising. Bake the souffl?s on a baking sheet in the lower third of the oven for about 20 minutes, until the souffl?s are puffed and the surfaces are cracked. Serve immediately from the oven, covered with caramel sauce, if desired. Posted to firstname.lastname@example.org by Recipe-a-Day
