Whisk together egg yolks, sugar and salt and heat over 2nd double boiler to reach 82C / 180F (while continuously whisking). Temper chocolate, and then mix it with the egg mixture, bloomed gelatine and 1/3 of the whipped cream.

Halloween Pumpkin Chocolate Soufflé

Halloween Pumpkin Chocolate Soufflé recipe

This recipe is an early Halloween special, it’s a Halloween Pumpkin Chocolate soufflé recipe! I was thinking for a while of what dish should I make for Halloween this year, and then, Gronda had announced their chocolate soufflé challenge in collaboration with Valrhona. So, it made all kind of sense for me to combine these 2 events and make a special Halloween Pumpkin Chocolate Soufflé. *Disclaimer: Unfortunately, I just could not find any actual tiny pumpkins this early in the season. But! I found a perfect mini-squash! So, let’s just pretend it’s a tiny-pumpkin here… Besides, due to a selection of fall spices, that I’ve used for this recipe, it tastes just like Starbucks’ famous pumpkin spice latte? only with chocolate.
