"We love strawberries and chocolate at our house, so I developed this fudgy, fruity torte out of two others we’ve enjoyed in the past. Fresh raspberries, along with raspberry cream cheese and yogurt make tasty substitutes in this delightful, impressive dessert," says Pat Stewart from Lee’s Summit, Missouri.

"I was very impressed with how easy this dessert was to make and also the overall appearance but I wish the overall taste would have been better. The taste of this torte definitely has good intentions but there was WAY too much cream cheese mixture in my opinion and it was a little too sweet. I think if I would have used a third of the cream cheese mixture to make a nice thin layer on top and left everything else the same, it would have bee much better!"
