Chocolate torte drizzled with caramel sauce is sinfully rich!

I've made this a few times for holidays and special occasions. It is without a doubt, delicious! VERY rich, though so only slice into slivers (about 1 - 1.5 inch at base of wedge). It's easy and has a beautiful presentation.
This dessert is outstanding but so rich. You can only eat a sliver. Everyone who tasted it loved it. I will probably make this one forever.
I have made this twice. It is a wonderful and very rich.I have also used the crust recipe for pecan pie. The non-celiac family members prefer the crust over flour crust now. Woderful and easy to make.Thank you for this site. It is my favorite GF baking site.
I have never made this recipe with pecans. I always use ground almonds available at trader joe's. This is an AWESOME recipe but is totally dependent on your chocolate quality. I use 72% cocoa chocolate.Also, due to corn allergy in our house, I make the caramel by melting sugar over the stove and slowly adding cream to the melted sugar until it is the right consistency - and don't even bother with butter. It's not necessary if you make a sugar/cream caramel.In any case, this is one of my all time favourite decadent desserts. I have been making it for almost 7 years, since I first discovered it on this site.

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
