Chocolate-Raspberry Torte

Chocolate-Raspberry Torte

Pin It

Don't let the relative lack of height fool you.  This torte packs all of the chocolate and raspberry flavor you can handle into its two dense layers.  Notice the size of the slice.  That is just about right to satisfy the dessert craver after a nice meal.  But believe me, you'll want to have another for breakfast the next morning when you open the fridge and catch the gleam shining off the chocolate ganache.
