Palo Chocolate Soufflé Recipe

Today's Foodie Fare find is a recipe from Palo the Disney Cruise Line signature dining experience. Dining at Palo is reserved exclusively for adults. Every romantic dinner, exquisite champagne brunch and elegant afternoon high tea provides unsurpassed service and inspired Northern Italian cuisine. 

This is one cruise experience you don't want to miss. I always make ADRs for date night on the high seas at Palo. Sometimes more than one night too;)  
The dessert menu includes this signature chocolate soufflé. It's Dreamy, Magical & Wonderful!

*More info than you need to know
Dutch- processed cocoa was developed in the 19th century. It is chocolate that has been treated to modify it's color and give it a milder smoother taste compared to natural cocoa. It is used in ice cream, hot cocoa and baking. Dutch chocolate does not react with baking soda. It should be used in recipes that require baking powder.
