      My mother requested a chocolate torte with chocolate ganache and raspberry sauce so I made her this, and added some raspberry sauce. It was a hit. She LOVED it! Thought it was the best dessert she had ever had. I made it with a combination of semisweet chocolate and unsweetened chocolate because that's what I had on hand. I made it a day ahead and refrigerated it. I have a feeling I'll be making this again next year for her birthday:) Thanks for posting!
