Not much is better than chocolate souffles and this guilt free option is perfect. It’s only 6 SmartPoints and is similar to a molten cake.
My husband, who is a huge supporter of my passions and food – more on that another day – has a love of all things chocolate.
He loves sweets and desserts, in general, actually. And to be fair, so do I. Since joining Weight Watchers, however, it’s been hard to enjoy a chocolate dessert that isn’t tons of SmartPoints.
We were at my sister’s house the other weekend and I was mentioning trying to lighten up a chocolate dish for Valentine’s Day.
She then dropped her trusty cookbook (she has a few that are must haves) on the table and pointed to what she lovingly refers to as Sexual Chocolate (the inspiration for this recipe).
I knew right then and there that I had to find a way to lighten that recipe up. It could be done – I just had to figure out how. If you are interested in a fudge brownie, this recipe is fabulous.
Luckily, changing out a few key ingredients (using Stevia for sugar and cutting the butter in half), I think I have created a healthier alternative to her Sexual Chocolate. I loved how these turned out.
They are gooey, and chocolatey, and just about perfect. One note…I cooked mine a bit too long so they aren’t as molten in the middle as I wanted, but they still tasted amazing.
Now, I know that these are 6 SmartPoints (the original recipe was 11), but they are worth it. And just think – you indulge on the day of love. It’s ok to do that.
What is your favorite chocolate dessert?
Better Than Sex Chocolate Souffles
- 4 Tablespoons light butter
- 4 eggs
- 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 9 packets Stevia leaf herbal extract
- 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 oz semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Melt the chocolate and butter
- Microwave the chocolate alone on 50% for 2 minutes. Stir and add in the butter. Microwave an additional 1 minute on 50%.
Make the batter
- Beat the eggs, vanilla, sat, and stevia in a stand mixer, about 5 minutes. Combine the chocolate and butter mixture with the egg mixture. Stir to combine. Sprinkle the flour over the combined mixture. Fold to combine completely.
- Pour the batter into 8 prepared ramekins and bake for about 12 to 13 minutes, until the cakes have puffed about an inch above the ramekins.
Hello – I think that you can make the batter earlier and refrigerate it. I would probably do it either store it for a day or 2. I never tested doing this, but I don’t see why this wouldn’t be an issue.
Can the batter be made earlier and refrigerated and used later? If so how long can the batter stay in the refrigerator?
Oops. Sorry about that! It was supposed to read 9 packets, not 9 cups. Can you imagine 9 cups of stevia in a recipe? Goodness, that would be sweet. The 9 packets should be about 1/4 cup of stevia, I believe.
9 cup PKG stevia or half? What is the amount needed? Use 9 of the individual pkgs to equal 9 cups?
Thank you Anne! They taste pretty divine too.
These look divine!
Haha, thank you! They are amazing and taste so good!
Get in my mouth! These look delish.
Thank you! They are delicious, and I highly suggest trying them for Valentines Day.
Thank you! I loved these…they were so delicious. You could also probably just use the butter at room temperature and not melt it. Or you can melt it in a pan…either way will probably work well.
Looks delicious! I don’t own a microwave but I guess that step can be done in a double boiler. I love that you lightened them up!
