Chocolate Soufflés with Nougat Whip

by Debra on February 9, 2012

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, I’m betting some sort of chocolate dessert tops the list of those most requested; chocolate candy, brownies, red velvet anything . . . chocolate seems to reign supreme on this single holiday.  We thought you might enjoy a sexy little video to go with your dose of chocolate . . . m’kay, not that kind of video, we’re G-rated here at Smith Bites!! The Professor has dusted off his creative skills and written original music as well as used his mad sound-design skills . . . I gotta say, we kinda like this one . . .

You’ll be happy to know that even though there are two components to this dessert, it does come together quickly and the souffles bake off in less than 20 minutes. Another benefit is that you can actually make both the souffle and the nougat topping in advance; the souffles as much as 2 days in advance while the nougat can be made ahead up to 2 hours before you serve it. That makes this dessert a complete win in my book.

Pour yourself a nice glass of wine, enjoy a nice dinner and serve these chocolate lovelies for dessert . . . and I think it is completely acceptable to make these for yourself . . . then you don’t have to share!

Very clever and amazing use of sound! I will have those beats in my head next time I’m trying to drown out the loudness of the hand mixer.

Okay, I do believe these would give chocolate cake a run for it’s money!

Is it hot in here, or is it me? Holy guacamole. That’s one hot video, Debra. Happy Valentines Day to you and the Professor.

Um, that’s kinda sexy! Love it. I totally want to learn how to do video like you!!

Wow! If the visual wasn’t enough all those wonderful sounds tempted you along the way, truly magnificent. Bravo!


Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking February 10, 2012 at 2:00 pm

What a beautiful souffle and a lovely, sensual video to go along with the recipe! Well done.


Lana February 10, 2012 at 11:20 am

Very sexy, indeed! Reminded me just a bit of Dexter images, full of sensory input, but in a good sense. How did you shoot the souffles rising in the oven? Amazing!
I am so proud of you two – this is a professionally executed video!


Debra February 19, 2012 at 7:07 pm

hey Lana ~ my apologies for missing your question about shooting the souffles rising!! we baked those in a convection oven that has a glass front. set the camera on a tripod in front of the oven, set the camera on a timer to snap a photo every 5 seconds thru the entire baking process . . . everything is then edited down into that time lapse. hope that answers your question but give me a shout if you need anything else!


Amy February 10, 2012 at 7:56 am

Nice. I’m over here just snapping along with that cool music. I want.


P & D February 10, 2012 at 12:27 am

I like-a the video, I like-a the music! and the dessert looks scrumptious! But someone would have to deliver the dessert to my door.


The Rowdy Chowgirl February 9, 2012 at 10:27 pm

Wow! That’s the sexiest G-rated video I’ve ever seen!
