I really liked some parts of this recipe but didn't care for the torte cake at all. I found the cake to be tasteless and cardboard-like so I used a different vegan chocolate cake recipe. But the peanut butter filling and ganache are right on. My family, vegan and nonvegans, just loved it. It's like eating a Reese's Chocolate Peanut Butter cup but better.
