Red, White and Blueberry Torte
This recipe is so easy to make. I made it for a cookout and everybody loved it. They were asking for the recipe. I will definitely make it for the Fourth of July.
This recipe is an easy and delicious delight.
I made this for a 4th of July party and it was a complete hit. It is a perfect blend of chocolate, creamy filling and berries. It was easy to make and received wow's from everyone. Even the non-dessert eaters ate some of this torte. I highly recommend this recipie to anyone no matter what your cooking skill as mine are limited and it was perfect.
This dessert was perfect! Be sure to check the torte before taking it out of the oven, though - we had to bake ours nearly twice as long as the recipe called for, and like I said - it was perfect. Easy and delicious.
This was easy to make and so tasty - used strawberry cool whip but that did not help the red, white and blue theme.

Won first place
My office was recently holding a "red, white and blue" baked good contest. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. I baked the recipe without trying it in advance and took it to the bake off. I won first place. A dear friend was competing as well and raved about the choice.
red, white and blue
This torte was excellente. I made it with blueberries and red raspberries. MmmMmm! I did have a problem the second time I tried to make it. It did not cook completely in the 25 minutes. I took it out thinking it was done(even did toothpick test) and when I put it on the wire rack to cool completely it fell right through b/c it was still too gooey. Oops!
Red, white and Blue torte
This recipe was very easy to make -- we used the mini chocolate chips instead of the regular size -- a big HIt for the community 4th of July picnic.
This is an easy recipe and an excellent crowd pleaser. My family and friends love it. Thank you!
red, white and blueberry torte
I made this for a Fourth of July barbecue that I went to yesterday. It was so delicious and easy to make. Many requests for the recipe.
Excellent torte! Very moist and chewy - and easy to make. Was a BIG HIT!!!
Made this for the family celebration. Not only was it very easy, but everybody loved it. My mom is diabetic, and I used lite cream cheese and whipped topping. I also used fresh raspberries in place of the strawberries. My mom made sure she left room for the torte by foregoing corn on the cob. Will definitely make again.
Very good summer recipe. It's easy and presents well.
Blonde is Better
I made this torte substituting the chocolate bottom with your 'Blonde Brownie' recipe and it was awesome! Rave reviews from all at the picnic!!
Easy, Colorful, great taste
This was a really easy recipe to make, the torte kinda scared me, but I was suprised how easy it was. I did add a small scoop of marshmellow cream to the cream cheese mix. Everyone really love this torte.
Pretty to look at!
I made this for a pot luck luncheon yesterday. It tasted great everyone loved it plus it was refreshing to eat on a hot day and so festive for the 4th of July holiday coming up!
RED,WHITE AND BLUEBERRY TORTE
THIS RECIPE IS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE FOUND LATLEY. IT IS VERY EASY TO MAKE AND DELISHIOUS TOO. IT IS ALSO AN EASY RECIPE TO HAVE YOUR CHILDREN HELP WITH.
This cake was so good. With the cream cheese and whip topping frosting it was not sweet like most frostings. I made this on a rainy weekend and it went fast. I'll make it for the fourth of July.
Red, White & Blue Sensation!
Had to try this out before Mom's birthday (July 4th)- using Splenda, egg substitute and low-fat cream cheese. There wasn't a crumb left! Definitely a hit and will definitely make for July 4th. Very easy and very good. I'll try it later with peaches and strawberries!

Choose your color torte
This recipe called for the red/white/blue theme using blueberries, strawberries, w/ a white base on chocolate foundation. I used a more spring like color scheme using grapes and peaches. Absolutely delicious!
