Hey friends, just popping in here for a late Friday night post. We had a little technical glitch with the blog this morning – so very sorry if you stopped by earlier! The issue seems to be resolved, at least for now, and we’ll be back next week with our regular posting schedule. In the mean time, I wanted to share this fantastic Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte. It’s only slightly modified from the original genius recipe by blogger couple Kevin and Amanda (I added a little french sea salt for finishing) and so rather than post the recipe, I’m just going to direct you over to their wonderful blog here.
I made this torte – which they call a pie – twice last week and both times it was gobbled up. The best part of the recipe is that it really is no bake! You’ll need a microwave to melt some butter, the stovetop (or, if you’re brave, the microwave again) to heat some cream, and a food processor for grinding up all those oreos, but no oven. I do recommend a torte pan with a removable bottom for ease of slicing and all around presentation but you most definitely could make this chocolate wonder in a traditional pie pan.
Now, it’s important to note that all the fantastic chocolate and peanut butter make it suuuuuuuper rich, so a very small slice goes a long way. In other words, it may not seem like it, but this dessert will most definitely feed a crowd. Plan to make it a little ahead of time as it is definitely best served chilled. It is also wonderful served with a light dollop of whipped cream, which ironically seems to counter the heaviness of all that great chocolate and butter. Do yourself a favor this holiday weekend and make one to share with your friends and family. You won’t regret it.
