I am making Individual Mocha Souffles for a family gathering but a few don't like the taste of coffee. Any suggestions? Can I make the recipe but leave out the coffee?

I'm guessing you're asking about the make-ahead souffles in my story for FC issue #54, right? You absolutely can take out the coffee! Simply remove the coffee granules completely and go for straight-up chocolate flavor.

If you're feeling adventurous, here are a few flavoring options:
ORANGE: add finely grated orange zest (1 to 2 teaspoons) and use Grand marnier (or water) for the liquid.
HAZELNUT: add toasted and chopped hazelnuts (about 1/2 cup)and use brandy or rum (or water) for the liquid.
GINGER: Add 2 to 3 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger and brandy or water for the liquid.
RASPBERRY: Add 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest, brandy or water for the liquid, and gently fold in 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries. Have an extra couple of ramekins on hand for this version as the raspberries will up the yield.

Remember that, in my opinion, chocolate goes with everything! Explore and experiment on your own and keep me posted on your findings.
