      I haven't had a torte since I was 5 (37 years ago). I decided to look one up and see if it was as good as I had remembered. This is an EXCELLENT recipe and was exactly like I remember (well, to the best of my knowledge as I am 43 years old :( ). This is a must try if you are looking for a fantastic chocolate torte. Thanks Tricia for the stroll down memory lane.
