Jack Daniel's Chocolate Pecan Torte

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Ashleybakes

My husband's Christmas party was catered by L'Auberge du Lac and this was the best dessert served out of many. It has a strong hint of the liquor, and a gooey chocolate taste, almost like a perfectly undercooked brownie with the pecan bits inside. Absolutely delicious, it was a phenomenal hit, served at room temperature without topping. I found the recipe posted on our local news site by the pastry chef who catered the event, Bill Foltz.

I made this for a special dinner and it was devoured by all. Very flavorful but I wouldn't suggest serving this to children. You can taste the Jack Daniels :D. Made for Comfort Cafe Snow Queens 2010
