Chocolate Chile Soufflés with Habanero Devil Dust

These simple yet elegant soufflés will have guests begging for more.  Rich milk chocolate is accented with cinnamon spice and spiked with cayenne.  Tantalizing wicked hot habanero devil dust is sifted on top, leaving these intensely moist chocolate soufflés with a passionate kiss of  fiery sweet heat.

This is one of my favorite recipes because the soufflés can be ready in less than 15 minutes and the filling can be made up to 2 days in advance and refrigerated until ready to bake.
