Place the egg white in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until soft peaks form. Add remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, one teaspoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Gently stir 1/4 of egg white mixture into chocolate mixture; gently fold in remaining egg white mixture.

Spoon mixture into prepared dishes. Tap dishes 2 or 3 times to level and bring bubbles to the surface. Place dishes on a baking sheet; bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until puffy and set. Sprinkle each soufflé with 1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar. Serve immediately…maybe with a side of vanilla ice cream!
