"Don't wreck a sublime chocolate experience by feeling guilty. Chocolate isn't like premarital sex. It will not make you pregnant. And it always feels good."-Lora Brody, Baker
Use this basic recipe to make any kind of soufflé. The recipe is simple – sauce and egg whites. You can use almost any fruit and end up with a dessert that will be the hit of your dinner party (or that weeknight treat).
If chocolate liquor is not dried and ground into cocoa powder, it is refined further by replacing some of the cocoa butter with lecithin (and other ingredients depending on the manufacturer) to create a smooth velvety chocolate. This unsweetened chocolate is what we know as baker's chocolate. It is also called bitter chocolate and is the base for most of the chocolate sweets created today.
Some baker's chocolate has sugar added to it to make bittersweet chocolate. Most recipes will specify whether you should use unsweetened baker's chocolate or bittersweet baker's chocolate.
