After I tasted this dessert at a party, a friend shared the recipe. It originally called for pound cake...and I decided to lighten it up by substituting angel food. The result was this delicious light torte.

I created this recipe based on a chocolate cake a friend made for me several years ago. I love the fact that it has brown sugar instead of granulated sugar. It's a favorite around Christmas, not only because of the great flavors, but because it makes a spectacular presentation. —Mary Shivers, Ada, Oklahoma
This is one of my favorite dessert recipes because it's easily and quickly prepared, yet it's very different and delicious, good for any occasion. It is sure to impress your guests as it has mine.

"This elegant dessert is as beautiful as it is delicious," says Brenda Bodnar from Euclid, Ohio. "Not only is it ultra-easy to prepare, but it's a make-ahead recipe, so there's no last-minute fussing when company is coming."
This no-bake chocolate dessert from Rhonda Lanterman of Terrace, British Columbia has a tasty almond crust and smooth fluffy filling that's almost like a mousse. "It's so simple to make ahead of time and so delicious," she says.
Guests will think you fussed when you serve this three-layer torte made with convenient cake and pudding mixes, a bit of jam and fresh raspberries. It looks elegant for most any special occasion and always brings lots of compliments.
