Food Friday: Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte
Today is a special occasion and I wanted to make something special to go with it.
I have made the Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte once before and it was well worth the trouble.
First, you make an Oreo cookie Crust.
Then you make a mixture of mini chocolate chips, peanuts, cinnamon, espresso powder, and nutmeg.
The homemade whipped cream is hard to get from the mixer to the fridge without a small sample.
The cream cheese and peanut butter whipped together is smooth and creamy. Then you fold in some of the whipped cream to lighten it. Add the chocolate chip mixture, more peanuts, the rest of the whipped cream and smooth all of that over the Oreo cookie crust. Let that set. Later, I will melt the remaining chocolate with the last of the cream to make a ganache. Pour it over the top. Sprinkle with more peanuts and let that set.
Carefully remove the springform pan (to be done later) and VOILA!
If I can remember, I will put pictures of the finished product out here tomorrow. Hope you enjoy! I know I will.
