  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbsp semisweet chocolate , chopped

To make the chocolate torte:

1. Preheat oven to 350 ℉. Melt butter and chocolate together in saucepan over low heat. Whip egg yolks with half the sugar (to creamy texture) until light and fluffy. Whip egg whites in a separate bowl to a soft peak. Fold in remaining sugar. Gently fold chocolate mixture into egg yolks, using a spatula. Gently fold egg whites into chocolate mixture, using spatula. Spoon mixture into six 5 oz. or 6 oz. souffl'e containers. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn souffl'es over onto plates. Serve warm.

For the mocha sauce:

1. Prepare simple syrup by bringing 1 Tbsp of water to a boil, then dissolve 1/8 cup of sugar into this. Once the sugar is fully dissolved, remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool. Bring chocolate, cream, and syrup to a boil over low heat. Add espresso to taste. Remove from heat.

Drizzle mocha sauce over tortes. Can garnish with powdered sugar, mint leaves, and a scoop of espresso coffee ice cream.

Note: Sugar can be left out, though the torte may not hold its shape or rise quite as well.
