Rich Chocolate Torte

A fun spin on a decadent treat

It’s always a good idea to have a rich, chocolatey trick up your sleeve when you need that show-off treat that gets everyone jittery with anticipation the moment they lay eyes on it. Most Parisiennes (Parisian women), for instance, keep a chocolate fondant recipe on hand for those times they want to invite a friend or two over for a long-overdue catch-up. This chocolate torte hits the same spot for me. It’s one of the ultimate just-because-I-can indulgences that transports me right back to my year in Paris. Best part about it? It’s all done within the hour, so you can make it the night before and put the finishing touches on it just before your guests arrive.
