Chocolate Nut Torte Recipe

This recipe brings back pleasant memories of my childhood—my grandmother would make it when we'd come to visit. Now I prepare it for my own grandchildren.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling YIELD:12-16 servings


  • 1 chocolate bar with almonds (7 ounces), broken into pieces
  • 16 large marshmallows, quartered
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs (about 45 wafers)
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • Additional vanilla wafer crumbs, optional


  • 1. Place chocolate bar, marshmallows, almonds and milk in the top of a double boiler; melt over simmering water. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  • 2. Sprinkle crumbs in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. dish. Fold whipped cream into chocolate mixture; spread over crumbs. Sprinkle additional crumbs over top if desired. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Yield: 12-16 servings.
