  • Unsalted butter and sugar


  • cup Bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp. Milk
  • 1 tsp. Coffee-flavored liqueur (such as Kahlúa)
  • ½ tsp. Instant espresso powder
  • ½ tsp. Cornstarch
  • 2 tsp. Sugar, divided
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon


  • 1 Egg yolk 
  • tsp. Pure vanilla extract


  • 1 Egg white 
  • Pinch cream of tartar
  • Pinch kosher salt 
  • 1 recipe Dulce de Leche Sauce
  •  Whipped cream 
  • Chopped pecans


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Coat two 6-oz. soufflé cups with butter and sugar. Chill cups on a baking sheet while preparing batter.
  • Melt chocolate chips with milk, liqueur, espresso powder, cornstarch, ½ tsp. sugar, and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium heat, whisking until smooth.
  • Combine yolk and vanilla, then whisk into chocolate mixture. Cook 2 minutes, remove from heat, and cool to room temperature.
  • Beat egg white with cream of tartar and salt with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 1½ tsp. sugar; continue beating until stiff peaks form (whites stand up when beaters are lifted from bowl). Using a whisk, blend whites into chocolate mixture until there are no streaks. Fill prepared cups with batter; bake on the baking sheet until soufflés puff, about 20 minutes. Test for doneness by inserting a skewer into the center of a soufflé — soufflé is done when skewer comes out clean or slightly moist.
  • To serve, cut a small slit in top of each soufflé. Pour Dulce de Leche Sauce into soufflés, allowing sauce to pool and drip down sides.
  • Top soufflés with whipped cream and pecans. Serve immediately.
