 No-Bake Chocolate Torte
Here's a delightful dessert that only looks like you fussed all day. With its attractive appearance and wonderful taste, no one will know that you saved time by spreading an easy-to-prepare frosting on a store-bought pound cake.
4-6 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 20 min.


  • 1 frozen pound cake (10-3/4 ounces), thawed
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 6 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 6 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Almond Extract
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted, optional


  • Slice pound cake lengthwise into three layers and set aside. In a
  • large bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar
  • and cocoa; beat until stiff peaks form. Stir in extract.
