Chocolate Marshmallow Soufflé
Soufflés may be served as a main dish, side dish, an appetizer, or as dessert.
What's so interesting about baked soufflés is that air is used as a primary ingredient to make soufflés look inflated. That is why it is recommended to serve soufflé immediately since once it leaves the oven, the air that is inside gradually escapes from the baked dish, deflating it.
Here's a soufflé recipe that you can serve as a light dessert. Chocolate Marshmallow Soufflé may be served with fruit sauces like orange or strawberry. Or you may also want to serve it with some fresh strawberries on the side of the plate.
