    Golden Treasure

    Lisa Kroft from MARION, IN

    Smashing hit!

    Pat Pruitt from SPRINGDALE, AR

    New yers eve night I had made 2 of these for dessert. The rave reviews I got were worth all the extra effort I had put into making them. I did not think they were hard to make, just time consuming. Could not find the gold dust so I used whipped cream to decorate them. We are non alcohol drinkers so we served hot coffe and tea. I really felt good about the compliments I got and will definately use this recipe many times. In fact all the friend that were here wanted the recipe. I am very glad I get your site. I use many recipes from it and have not found a bad one yet. Some are alot better than others but all have been good. Keep up the good work.

    Maria S from Bloomington, IN

    This recipe was wonderful. I am not very fond id semi-sweet chocolate so I used milk chocolate instead. It was so good. I too had a difficult time finding gold dust so I used white cake gliter, it looked great. I can't wait to make this again.

    Rich and Smooth

    Janet Morrissey from BALTIMORE, MD

    I made this for Valentine's Day in a heart-shapped pan lined with parchment paper. My husband was suitably impressed and said the gold made him feel like "a million bucks". Now that I have the gold dust, I will make this again for any special occasion or just to make any occasion special.

    Show stopper!

    Stephanie Bernstein from Lake Worth, FL

    This was a fabulous dessert. It was time consuming & I did question the recipe at times but it was beautiful & decadent. I did not find the gold dust so I adorned each slice with a raspberry & some confectioners sugar - just a dusting. The torte was the talk of the entire evening! I was called the master baker!

    Delicious and rather easy to make and boy does it look spectacular! Sold one at a bake sale for $25.00! (of course it was for charity) The first one I made I could not resist taking one sliver after another to eat after saying it was too rich for a full slice. Good-by diet!

    Laurie Lomask from West Hartford, CT

    This recipe literally takes the cake. It is moist, sweet, luscious and oh so rich all at once. It is extra chocolatey and the presentation is dramatic. What else could you ask for? The only thing I could say is that it is a bit too rich for some to handle.
