A keeper! Prepared twice over Christmas holiday.Everyone said its the best in flavor/taste/appearance. The second try I used raspberry pie filling versus the jam and then made lemon curd for the second layer with whipped topping flavored with raspberry extract and final fresh raspberries-no top crust. Baked it after the raspberry & chocolate layer enough to brown the crust. Try it you will like it! Both recipes super!

Easier than I imagined and much better than it looks which is hard to believe! I have always told others I am not a cook or much of a baker but after making this, no one will ever believe me again! Incredible results! Easily impresses everyone! Thank you Nestle!
Didn't think I could do it!

When I read this recipe It sounded heavenly but very hard. I thought, what the heck, I've made big messes before and if that is how this one turns out, so be it. I have learned to follow receipes by going from one sentence to the next and thank goodness it worked. My family was astounded that even they know I'm a pretty good cook, some things are just above my means. They were so happy for me that it looked so perfect. When they tasted it, it was great! The looks on their faces were amazing. Once again Mom had suceeded. I am really glad that I did it and will do it again. Don't let the ones that look too hard get you down as I almost did. If it turns out to be a mess, throw it out and try again. I have decided that I am as smart as any receipe and will not hesitate to let the hard ones stop me from trying. Thank you for writing them so we can follow them word by word. Sooner or later you will build up your self esteen and know that you can do it. It was hard but well worth it.

I was looking for a unique birthday treat for myself and picked this one. It was quite easy to make. I did not take the time to refrigerate like in the recipe. I think the torte itself went into the freezer for ten minutes and the rolled out top a little longer. The combination of the chocolate and raspberries reminded me of a favorite candy I have loved since I was a child. Even my pickiest of eaters enjoyed it at my house. Most assuredly a keeper.

This one is real good and sweet, for the chocolate lover in you. I am a chocolate lover also, so this is terrific! Add more or less chocolate to your taste. Excellent for parties too.

I made this for my Thanksgiving dessert and it was such a hit! I made it with pureed cherry preserves and frozen cherries instead or raspberry jam, and it went so well with the almond crust. I will definitely make this again.
