Buttery graham cracker crust, chocolate-chip-brownies, melt-in-your-mouth mocha glaze - what's not to love? And despite the different steps, it's a total breeze to make. Guests always ask for the recipe. Don't pass this one by!


  • 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup almond toffee bits
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Chocolate Layer:

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp. coffee, strongly brewed
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • 1 (19.5 oz.) package brownie mix (any flavor)
  • 6 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


Spray bottom only of 10-inch springform pan with no-stick cooking spray. Mix graham cracker crumbs, toffee bits, brown sugar, and 1/4 cup melted butter in medium bowl with fork until crumbs are coated. Press in bottom of buttered pan.


Heat heavy cream in 1 quart saucepan over medium-low heat until hot. Stir in coffee. With wire whisk, stir in chocolate chips until smooth. Remove from heat. Place 1/4 cup chocolate mixture in small microwave-safe bowl; set aside for drizzle. Pour and carefully spread remaining chocolate mixture over crust. Freeze 20 minutes.

Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Mix brownie mix, 6 tablespoons melted butter and water in large bowl; beat 50 strokes with spoon (mixture will be thick). In small bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixer on high speed 1 to 2 minutes or until soft peaks form. Add to brownie mixture; beat with electric mixer on low speed just until blended, about 30 seconds (batter will appear lumpy). Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips.

Remove crust from freezer. Spread batter over chocolate layer.

Bake 45 to 60 minutes or until center is puffed and set and edges are firm (middle will be soft). DO NOT overbake. Cool on wire rack 2 hours.


Run knife around side of pan; remove side. Microwave reserved chocolate mixture on high 10 to 15 seconds until desired drizzling consistency; drizzle over torte. To serve at room temperature, cool an additional hour, or refrigerate until serving time. Top individual servings with unsweetened whipped cream, if desired.

I would like to find a German torte recipe for a dessert I had in a restaurant lately. It was in a cupcake liner, was tasty like a cheesecake with a gel topping, sliced kiwi and strawberries in the topping. Hope you can help.

Here is a recipe that I received from a German Friend
Large Tart (tart pan)
Bake at 350 15-25 minutes
75 grams butter (1 tablespoon = 20 grams)
75 grams regular sugar
2 teaspoons full vanillin sugar **
pinch salt
150 grams flour
1 level teaspoon baking powder
About 2 tablespoons milk
** vanillina sugar (place a couple vanilla beans in a med size container with super fine sugar. I couldn't find this type of sugar at my grocery. So my friend told me about making it this way. Make it before you decide to make the tart.
Make large box of jello. I find that Strawberry or Cherry works best. Put in frige and let it set till some what thick, but easy enough to spoon over fruit.
Use large can of sliced peachs or fruit cocktail (DRAINED)

Cream butter, add sugars gradually, then eggs and salt. Add sifted flour and baking powder. Add only so much milk that dough drops heavly from spoon.
Grease tart pan. Spread dough evenly into pan. Bake at 350 for 15 to 25 minutes till golden brown and tooth picked to be sure it is baked.
Let cool.
You can make your own cooked vanilla pudding or buy some at the grocery store. I use those little snack puddings.
Turn tart out of pan on to a large serving pan. I pizza pan can work well.
Spread pudding over the tart, making sure that the bottom of the tart is covered.
Spoon drained fruit over pudding.
Finish with spooning thickened jello over fruit.
Place in refrigerator till set. Then you can cover it with alum foil.
Serve with cool whip or whipped cream.
This can be also made in small tart pans for individual servings.
This is my son favorite dessert.
