Mini Chocolate Souffles
These warm, bittersweet puffs have coffee in them, but you'd never know it. Performing culinary sleight of hand, the hidden ingredient just helps chocolate taste more chocolatey, like a capful of vanilla would, but with a darker intent.
Soufflés are a dinner-party stunner. To serve them warm to guests, plan to start the recipe before eating and "pause" your cooking after Step 3. Leave the chocolate-egg mixture out and preheat the oven while you eat, then whip the egg whites and bake the soufflés after dinner.
