This is my French contribution to Super Bowl Party Food: Nutella® Soufflé! Easy to make, and delicious! Plus, because it is a soufflé, it is actually quite light, while still having the delicious taste of Nutella®. This is a dessert everyone loves, including kids! Great party food, or a fun way to end a meal!
Nutella® Soufflé Recipe
The recipe is from the French cookbook Simplissime Desserts. It can be used with any chocolate/hazelnut spread. I am using Nutella®, because my family loves Nutella®, but feel free to use any spread you like.
Butter the inside of the ramekins. Sprinkle with sugar while shaking the ramekins, so the sugar sticks to the ramekin sides. See picture.
In a bowl, mix the egg yolks with the Nutella®. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites. (To do so, add a pinch of salt, and use an electric mixer. Whisk always in the same direction, gradually increasing speed until the egg whites are stiff.) Add 2 tablespoons of sugar, and continue whisking for 5 extra seconds.
Gently incorporate the Nutella® mixture to the egg whites. Pour into 4 individual ramekins.
Bake in oven for about 20–25 minutes. Do not open the oven during that time. Eat immediately.
Optional: sprinkle with sugar before serving.
