Nutella Chocolate Souffles

I hope everyone had a wonderfully valentines day!  My boyfriend took me to dinner but I insisted on making dessert.  I love chocolate and I love nutella, so when I found this recipe for nutella chocolate souffles, I knew this would be a winner recipe!  I was very nervous while making this, I did some research and there were so many tips and things to make sure the souffles came out perfect.  Needless to say, my first attempt was a SUCCESS!  They were perfect!!  They were very light and fluffy, chocolaty and moist!  The nutella had just sunk to the bottom, but it was a nice surprise when you got there.  Overall, I would recommend this recipe to anyone with a love for nutella!!   Sorry the pictures are not the best, I was so anxious to try it i just snapped a few while they were cooling.
