Soufflés are spectacular and surprisingly easy to make. At our house, a chocolate soufflé, still dangerously hot from the oven, is pounced on and quickly devoured with big scoops of vanilla ice cream. Just make sure your kids don’t burn their tongues. You can assemble this soufflé up to 4 hours in advance and let it sit at cool room temperature until it goes into the oven.
