Chocolate Attack

This is a favorite dessert of mine that is actually very easy to make. It's very rich though so be careful on the size of portions.

Chocolate Raspberry Torte

1 pkg. (8 squares) Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate
¾ c. (1 ½ sticks) butter
1 pkg. (4 serving size) Jell-O Raspberry Flavor Gelatin
½ c. sugar
3 eggs
1/3 c. flour
1 tub (8 oz.) Cool-Whip thawed

Preheat 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 inch round cake pan, line with wax paper.

Microwave 4 squares of chocolate, stir after 1 minute.
Stir dry gelatin, mix sugar into chocolate and blend. Mix in eggs, stir in flour and pour onto prepared pan.

Bake 30 minutes, cool 5 minutes, then invert onto platter. Cool cake completely.

Meanwhile: Melt 4 squares chocolate, wait 1 minute, stir, then stir in whipped cream until smooth. Frost cake with mixture. Garnish with sugar coated raspberries and dried chocolate wedges.

Store in refrigerator.
