Chocolate-Mint Torte

Recipe photo courtesy of Beatriz Da Costa

This mousselike dessert is so airy it's liable to float right off your plate. Combine that texture with the cool flavor of peppermint-laced chocolate, and you have a treat that just might send you to cloud nine.

Cook's Notes

For the lightest mousselike texture, serve this flourless torte the day you bake it. For a denser dessert, refrigerate overnight. Torte can be made up to two days in advance.

    I have just made it and looks perfect and delicious. I haven't tried yet though. But I have changed the recipe a little since I had to make it in a bigger pan because I didn't have loaf pan. I doubled the chocolate, the eggs, the cream and the sugar but not the butter. I have the feeling that a whole pack of butter it is a lot of butter for the simple recipe. Let's see! Cheers...
