We’ve never been big on celebrating Valentine’s Day in the “traditional” way. Restaurants are generally crowded, so we’ve usually opted for a quiet night at home where we make a nice meal together (something fancier than we normally cook during the week).
Given that my expertise is baking, I am ALWAYS in charge of dessert…not that I mind! This year, I decided to make something ultra-decadent: Flourless Chocolate Torte. I also knew I wanted to take it over-the-top, so I put a pile of chocolate covered strawberries on top. Voila! The perfect dessert for my chocolate-lover boyfriend!
Step 1: Happy Valentie's Day!
Not only is this dessert delicious, and perfect for more occasions than just Valentine’s Day (think potlucks, family get-togethers, or whenever you want a chocolatey treat to sink a fork into), it’s also incredibly easy to put together! We’re talking five ingredients! Yes you read that right…FIVE! It can also be made with less if you choose to omit the dark rum or use only semi-sweet chocolate. That means there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be making this dessert!
This dessert is the perfect make-ahead treat, because it already requires a long period to set up. If you choose to make it more than one day in advance, simply remove the torte from the springform pan, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and keep in the fridge until you are ready to consume.
Top with a dusting of powdered sugar and a pile of chocolate covered strawberries before serving and your guests are in for a real treat!
