Fifteen-Minute Magic: Chocolate Amaretti Torte

This weeks selection for Tuesdays with Dorie is Fifteen-Minute Magic: Chocolate Amaretti Torte and it was chosen by Holly of Phe/MOM/enon. This is very simple cake to whip up using only the food processor. It uses ground amaretti cookies and almonds in place of flour. The cake remains moist but it forms a thin flaky layer on top. This isn't a problem because after it cools a yummy chocolate glaze is added. I served this with Dorie's bittersweet chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream, and the almond whipped cream. A very small slice of this cake is more than enough to satisfy any chocolate craving and please don't tell me how many calories there are.

That torte looks amazing and I bet it tasted just as good. I don't want to know anything about calorie counts either!

Beautiful! I don't want to know how many calories there are, but maybe I should!
