Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Torte (Very Easy)

Family Favorites

By
@Quinnn

When I need to impress, this is one of my "go to" recipes. So rich, thick, chocolaty and decadent. When served with fresh raspberries or strawberries, it rivals anything served in fine restaurants. No need to tell anyone how very easy it is to prepare. Great for Valentines Day or that special anniversary.

I've used the left-over whipping cream, whipped, and chocolate shavings (Hershey Bar) to garnish as well.
