chocolate soufflé

ingredients (serves 4):
1 1/2 Tbs sugar
4 Tbs butter
1 1/2 Tbs flour
7 oz dark chocolate, melted
2 egg yolks
4 egg whites
1/4 cup sugar

directions:
1. preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. grease four 3/4 cup ramekins or soufflé dishes. sprinkle insides of dishes evenly with sugar; shake away excess. place dishes on baking sheet.
2. melt butter in medium pan, add flour; cook, stirring, about 2 minutes or until mixture thickens and bubbles. remove from heat; stir in chocolate and egg yolks. transfer to large bowl.
3. beat egg whites in small bowl with electric mixer until soft peaks form. gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, one Tbs at a time, beating until sugar dissolves between additions. gently fold egg white mixture into chocolate mixture in two batches.
4. divide soufflé mixture among dishes; bake, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until soufflés are puffed. (we baked them for 13 minutes in our gas oven and they were perfect!!)
