I have served this decadent torte at many dinner parties, and have always receive never-ending compliments over this fantastic chocolate torte..I think it must be the pureed pears that give it it's rich flavour. It is surprisingly easy to prepare made with a mix, but no one will ever guess...this is certainly a winner.
