If you’ve never had a chocolate souffle before, you’re really missing out. If you’ve had it but never made it, you won’t believe how easy it can be. I’ve had ‘make a souffle’ on my cooking bucket list for quite some time and kept putting it off because I thought it would be too much work and never made the time. I’m an avid cruiser and on many of my cruises my favorite dessert of the week almost always ends up being a souffle of some sort. Now that I know how to make them myself, I’ll be able to recreate some of my favorites! The star of this particular recipe however isn’t the light and fluffy chocolate decadence, it’s actually the peanut butter whipped cream on top. Heavenly!
