Chilled Blackberry Soufflés...

Retro favourite- This is a great dessert for a special dinner as it can be made early on in the day and left to set in the fridge. Just peel away the paper before you serve them. If you would like to decorate the soufflés, add a few tiny blackberries and mint leaves to the top or dust lightly with a little sifted icing sugar at the very last minute.
