Chocolate Cream Torte

Chocolate Cream Torte / Busy Mom's Helper
Repost from 2012

One of my neighbors is expecting, and has been put on bed rest. With my twins, I ended up on bed rest for 12 weeks, so I completely understand what she’s going through! She has a little toddler, also, which makes it even more difficult to deal with trying to relax, yet still be ‘mommy’. We decided it’d be fun to take this creamy, chocolaty dessert over to her and her family. It’s really easy, and satisfies that chocolate sweet craving perfectly!

Chocolate Cream Torte

37 Vanilla wafer cookies (exactness isn’t necessary, this is just what I used)
4 squares Semi-sweet chocolate
2 pkg. (3.9 oz. each) Chocolate instant pudding
2 cups Milk, plus 2 tbsp.
8 oz. Whipped topping, thawed
8 oz. Cream cheese, softened
¼ cup Sugar
¾ cup Raspberries (if desired)

Take a 9-inch round pan and line it with plastic wrap. Using 16 of the wafer cookies, make a line on the outside edge of the pan.

Melt 3 of the chocolate squares.

Beat pudding mixes with 2 cups milk about 2 minutes. Add the melted chocolate and mix well. Stir in 1 cup of the whipped topping and pour into prepared pan.

Beat the cream cheese, sugar and 2 tbsp. milk with mixer until well blended. Stir in 1 cup of the whipped topping. Spread mixture over the pudding layer.

Top with the remaining wafer cookies.

Refrigerate for about 3 hours.

Shave the last chocolate square into curls with a potato peeler.

Invert torte onto a plate, and then remove the pan and plastic wrap. Top with remaining cool whip, raspberries (if desired) and chocolate curls.
