Hot Chocolate Brownie Torte

How can you wrong with a hot chocolate brownie torte? You can’t, but you can make it better with a hit of cayenne for a little bit of spice.

This Hot Chocolate Brownie Torte is a recipe from Clabber Girl. Of course I couldn’t turn down making it—one can never have too many brownie recipes and variations. And even more so, once I saw that it was a one-bowl brownie recipe—fast and easy.

That is, unless you add the chocolate marbled topping like I did. If you do, bake your brownie as the recipe directs and let it cool completely. While it’s cooling, grab two microwave safe bowls, one for each chocolate to make the marbled topping, recipe below. For the Hot Chocolate Brownie Torte hit the jump here for the recipe.

    This is serious brownie torte. That swirl on the top is so elegant, you could serve this to group of kids or at a fancy diner party. Either way, they will all love them; is the recipe posted later?

        Actually the recipe for the icing is not included. If you follow all the ingredients, they all go into the Torte.

    The text says the recipe is from Clabber Girl. I guess this is it: http://www.clabbergirl.com/consumer/recipes/index.php?mode=recipe&recipe=340
    However, I think there should be some icing for that marble thing.

    That marble looks beautiful! I like your idea of adding a touch of cayenne, I’m always for a little spice in my chocolate.

    The complete post is not visible. Can only see “while it is cooling, grab microwave safe bowls, one for each chocolate”
    Would love to see the full recipe for the marbled frosting.
    Thanks!

    It definitely doesn’t hurt to have a few brownie recipes in one’s repertoire. This one looks like it needs to be added to my list–the marble effect is gorgeous!

    Naomi, this is stunning! I am forever in awe of your ability to bend and play with light. The way the reflection of the coffee (or is it wine…) is glowing on the surface – perfection!! Not to mention the torte looks delish!
