Chocolate lovers, listen up! This torte is not only chocolaty, it is chocolate overload. But, in a good way. The fabulous Holly of Phe.Mom.enon chose 15 Minute Magic: Chocolate Amaretti Torte for us as this week's installment of Tuesdays with Dorie and all I can say is: Thank you, Holly! Hints of amaretto from pulverized amaretti cookies which, along with ground almonds, take the place of flour in this pleasantly dense and moist cake.
I was really happy to have my mom over this weekend and she was one of the lucky taste testers. She loved it, no, she raved about it, as did everyone else! Even the kids, and we all know that they already are in chocolate overload after being gifted an impressive amount of chocolate by the Easter Bunny. Not enough, it seems... The torte is, as its name implies, quite easy to pull together, even without the use of a food processor. Add almond scented whipped cream and a few crushed amaretti cookies for effect, and you end up with an impressive dessert for remarkably little work. Score!
Please visit Holly's blog Phe.Mom.enon for the recipe (and other fun stuff!) and don't forget to visit the rest of the Tuesdays with Dorie bakers for further inspiration!
