TWD - Chocolate Amaretti Torte

What a great way to start off a month of chocolate bliss.  Thanks to Holly of Phe.mom.enon for picking this weeks TWD recipe.  It's actually named "15-minute Magic Chocolate Amaretti Torte" and that's truly about all the time it took to throw this together.  Everything happens in the food processor so the clean up is a cinch also.  A bonus!

Many of the bakers had trouble finding the amaretti cookies that Dorie suggested, but I was lucky on that front.  I think they're important in this because of the intense almond flavor they bring, but a little shot of almond extract might do the trick.  

This is a really great cake that I know I'll be making again.  It's dense, chocolatey, and really easy.

Make sure to visit Holly's site for the recipe.


  1. Glad you liked it! It was really rich, perhaps a bit too much for me.

  2. That ice cream on top looks like a perfect partner for the torte. Great job.

  3. Looks wonderful. So moist. I am still looking for the cookies. Maybe I will use nillas. Great job.

  4. Yum! I love how your glaze is thick yet moist, just like the torte!
