2/3 c
1 c
melted butter (may not use all the butter)
9 inch spring-form pan


1 1/2-2 lb
best available semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate, well chopped into small pieces (use brick chocolate, not chips)

1 c
(or more) heavy whipping cream


1 stick
melted butter
1 lb

1 c

How to Make "Death by Chocolate"Chocolate Torte


  • 11 Prepare the crust. Chop/process the wafers and pecans until fine, add enough melted butter to press this into the spring-form pan (along the bottom and halfway up the sides). Bake in oven at 350°F for 20 minutes, put aside.
  • 22 While the crust is baking, prepare the filling. In double boiler melt the butter and then add the chocolate. When chocolate is swirl-able, slowly add the whipping cream, stirring slowly, until mixture is blended and smooth. Pour mixture into the prepared shell. Refrigerate for at least four hours.
  • 33 Prepare the sauce before serving (the sauce, served warm, should accompany the torte, served cold.) Melt butter over fairly high heat. Add sugar until saturated (the heat must be high enough for the sugar to dissolve; when no more will dissolve, the solution is saturated). Stirring only occasionally, let the mixture “burn” just enough to turn into a rich caramel. Add the cream, stirring briskly until well blended and smooth. Strain if necessary for smoothness.
