16 ounces high quality semi-sweet chocolate,  coarsely chopped

Caramel Sauce

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

2/3 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Stir together all crust ingredients in bowl. Firmly press on bottom and up sides of 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Place tart pan onto baking sheet. Bake 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat 2 cups whipping cream in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat 5-8 minutes or until mixture just comes to a boil. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate 2-3 minutes or until completely melted. Pour into cooled crust. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until set.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine all caramel sauce ingredients except 2/3 cup whipping cream in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 5-8 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil. Cool 5 minutes; stir in 2/3 cup whipping cream.

  5. STEP 5

    Beat 1 1/3 cups whipping cream in bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until stiff peaks form. Garnish torte with whipped cream. Serve with warm caramel sauce.

Tip #1

- Crust, filling and caramel sauce can be prepared 1 day before serving. Reheat caramel sauce just before serving.

Hi Meredith, we haven't tried substituting the fruit in this recipe, but it should work if you keep the same proportions. If you decide to try it, please let us know how it turns out for you!

This is a tried and true favorite. Even without the caramel sauce and whipped cream topping, it is still perfection. So simple yet so decadent and elegant.
