Ohhhh this recipe is SO good!
That's how good it is- I had to start the post by saying that. Chocolate. Cherries. Cream cheese-y mousse on top. I know some people on the P&Q were saying they don't like chocolate and cherries together. Not me. No siree! Black forest? Yes. Cherry-dipped chocolate ice cream cone? Hand it over!
This recipe is a moist and fudgy brownie base, filled with chocolate chunks and dried cherries (I omitted the kirsch).Then it's topped with a cream cheese marscarpone mousse. I confess here that I made a substitution. Made as is in the recipe, this would have cost me close to $15. For the topping, I used 8 oz cream cheese, 1/4 c sour cream, 2 T butter, 1/3 c sugar and 1T vanilla as in the recipe.
The torte turned out AMAZING and was a big hit with our guests. Check out April's blog for the recipe!
