It is intense chocolate. We loved it. Also tried it once without the coffee granules and liked it just as well.

Sweet Dreams!

This chocolate torte is so sweet and chocolatey, a small slice will do. I served this with homemade peppermint ice cream for the holidays. The top of the torte, I decorated with powdered sugar using a Christmas tree cookie cutter. It turned out elegant and festive. Easy to make and easy to eat!
