Roy's Hot Chocolate Souffle

Since I wasn't home the entire week, I didn't do much cooking. However, while out to dinner, Roy's kindly shared their Souffle recipe.

(Serves 4)
8 oz. semi-sweet dark chocolate
12 tbsp. butter
1 cup sugar
3 tbsp. cornstarch
4 eggs
4 egg yolks
soufflé rings

1. Mix sugar and cornstarch
2. Have eggs and yolks mixed together in a separate bowl.
3. In a saucepan, bring butter to a simmer. Add chocolate and mix until smooth. Continue mixing until chocolate begins to simmer along the edges.
4. Add the chocolate mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
5. Add eggs and mix at low speed until smooth and sugar is dissolved.
6. Pour into a bowl and refrigerate overnight.
7. On the next day pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Take out the souffle rings and line with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray.
8. Place each ring on a square of parchment paper and then on a baking sheet. Fill the ring 2/3rds with the chocolate mix.
9. Bake for 30 minutes.
10. Take out the baking sheet, lift rings with tongs and get underneath with metal spatula to transfer to a plate.
11. Lift mold and remove parchment paper.
12. Serve immediately with ice-cream
