Decadent Salted Caramel Chocolate Soufflé

It’s World Chocolate Day every year on 7 July, an annual celebration of chocolate that started back in 2009. Some are of the opinion that July 7 celebrates the introduction of chocolate to Europe in 1550. We think any day with chocolate is worth a celebration!

To commemorate World Chocolate Day this year, SASKO teamed up with renowned recipe developer and SASKO Top Baker, Lameez Abrahams to inspire SA’s chocolate lovers with an indulgent chocolaty treat, a Salted Caramel Chocolate Souffle recipe, that can easily be whipped together to surprise and delight.
