There is nothing that says celebration like a chocolate soufflé. Not only does a towering soufflé, fresh out of the oven, look sensational, but it is also one terrific low-fat dessert. Plus, this particular recipe is perfect for entertaining as the batter can be made up to one day in advance, held in the refrigerator, and baked while you enjoy your meal. Soufflés can also be made and baked in buttered and sugared individual soufflé molds. This is best done by piping the soufflé batter into the molds with a pastry bag fitted with a 1-inch plain tip. Fill as directed in the recipe and bake for 6 to 8 minutes.
