Tasty Tuesday–Chocolate Torte with Strawberry Cheeseball Filling!

I’m going to try to get back into regularly posting food/recipes on my blog so I decided to participate in a weekly blog hop, Tasty Tuesday.My first chocolate torte!  I made this a few weeks ago.  Not exactly a “quick and easy” kind of dessert because there are lots of weird little steps beyond the usual mix-things-together but the reward was SOOO worth it!

I used a strawberry cheeseball as my filling and it was DELICIOUS!

For the torte, I used the Hershey’s Viennese Chocolate Torte recipe.  Instead of using the suggested glaze, I used a thinned down version of Wilton Buttercream Icing.  I’m addicted to that stuff, it’s my go-to recipe for buttercream icing.  I’m sure the glaze probably would have a darker, richer taste, but I thought the buttercream was perfect for this cake.
And, rather than use the hershey’s recipe for the filling, I used a strawberry cheeseball.
The result was a really rich, decadent dessert that our whole family loved.
