I love chocolate,and this torte Is an old stand by. It originated from an old cook book of chocolate desserts. It is a rich cake. It is topped off with a dark chocolate glaze. It is defiantly a chocolate lovers cake. Serve with ice cream. Add nuts, berries or whip cream to top it off. It is delicious! Enjoy all!
