- 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate or dark chocolate, chopped
- 1/3 cup half and half
- 1/3 cup water

- Stir in the cocoa powder and water and bring to almost a boil, then turn off heat and set aside.
- Beat the eggs until foamy, about 1 minute. Slowly add the 1/2 cup sugar a little at a time and beat until soft peaks form.
- Very gently fold in about half of the egg whites into the chocolate.
- Add remaining egg whites and gently fold into chocolate.
- Divide the mixture between the ramekins, leaving about 1/4 inch space at the top.
- Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven about 15 minutes, or until the tops begin to turn light brown. Do not open the oven door during the baking period!
- Gently remove the soufflés from the oven and dust with powdered sugar.
