Here's a scrumptious dessert for chocoholics in the Right Carbs stage. Melting the chocolate in a microwave takes only minutes.


2 ounces bittersweet chocolate
1 tablespoon strong, decaffeinated, black coffee
2 (.035-ounce) envelopes sugar substitute
4 egg whites


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 2 minutes to melt. Stir in the coffee and sugar substitute.

Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold into the chocolate mixture. Spoon into 2 soufflé dishes (each 1-1/3 high x 4 inches in diameter or a single Pyrex bowl 3 inches high x 6 inches in diameter).

Bake in the oven for 8 minutes and serve warm.
