Who doesn’t love chocolate and orange? We don’t know anyone, either. This flourless chocolate torte gets its hint of citrus from our candied orange peel. A dark chocolate ganache enrobes the cake, creating a rich, decadent dessert that will satisfy even the pickiest dessert aficionado. Although this looks like it came from a bakeshop, it is simple to make and a great recipe to have on hand when you really want to impress your guests.
