ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Valentine’s Day is a holiday where chocolate and candy are at the center.

But there are ways to enjoy a sweet treat without feeling guilty.

Chef Jen Welper from the New Mayo Clinic Diet shares a simple, mindful dessert for those looking to manage their sugar intake around Valentine’s Day.



1 can Pan spray

4 each Eggs, separated and egg whites brought to room temp

¼ tsp. Salt

2 Tbsp. Sugar

½ cup Sugar

6 oz. Bittersweet chocolate,

1/3 cup Skim milk, room temperature

2 Tbsp. Sugar

Amaretto Cream

1 cup Non fat cool whip or whipped topping

1 Tbsp. Amaretto liquor


  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • Place chocolate in a heat proof bowl and melt.
  • Add sugar and 2 egg yolks stir often until incorporated.
  • Take off heat and stir in room temperature milk
  • Set aside and let cool.
  • Whip egg whites and salt in mixing bowl on medium high speed until soft peaks form.
  • Once soft peaks form add your 2 Tbsp. of sugar and then beat on high speed until stiff peaks form
  • Place ¼ of the egg white mixture in the chocolate mixture and stir to smoothen out.
  • Then slowly add chocolate mixture to egg white mixture. Add small amounts at a time and use a rubber spatula to fold the mixture. DO NOT STIR. Stirring will flatten the egg whites and lose their air content.
  • Spray each ramekin and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Place 1/3 cup of chocolate soufflé mixture in each ramekin
  • Bake in oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. The tops should just be lightly golden.

Chef’s Note: It’s important to not open the oven door multiple times as these are very delicate desserts. Serve hot out of the oven. Mixture can be done 30 minutes before baking.
