Cooking with Kids: Chocolate Souffle Safe Crock Pot Recipe

Chocolate SouffleI wanted to share with you some of my recent experiences spending time and cooking with my children.  Cooking with your kids creates a great bond, and it’s something that you will have in common in this high-tech world where your little ones are moving through life at faster than light speeds on their digital devices.  These articles will focus on letting the kids take over, cook with safety, and focus on great presentation of their work.  I’m going to turn this over to my daughter, Alyssa…

“Hi I’m Alyssa, 15 years old.  I do enjoy cooking and spending time with Dad.  And, I LOVE to cook desserts!  🙂

Today I’m going to tell you how to make a souffle in the crock pot and my experience making it. I made this recipe with my 14 year old cousin. It’s an easy recipe and it’s safe with the crock pot.  Why is it safe?  Kids learning to cook doesn’t splash or stir the ingredients everywhere. You can leave the crock pot on for long amounts of time without it becoming overly hot. Tell your children to stay away from the sides.  Even though it is safer, the sides do still get hot enough to burn fingers getting too close.

I decided to cook my souffle with dark chocolate. The dark chocolate caused the souffle to be slightly bitter, but when you add ice cream and whipped topping, the souffle tasted great!  If you want it to be sweeter then use milk chocolate.

There were very few challenges to making the souffle. One thing that didn’t turn out too well were the edges. The edges got burnt and didn’t taste good. I think if I were to make this again I would put Tin foil around the edges. If it burns then just cut off the edges and don’t eat them.

What you’ll need for ingredients:

  • 18 1/4 oz package of chocolate
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of sour cream
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 3 oz box of instant pudding mix
  • 1 cups chocolate chips (optional)

Step by step directions

  1. Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl
  2. Spray interior of slow cooker with a nonstick spray.
  3. Put the dry ingredients into a bowl. Stir.
  4. Put wet ingredients into a bowl. Stir
  5. Pour souffle mix into the slow cooker
  6. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. DO NOT lift the cover until the end of the 6 hours.
