Strawberry Fudge Torte

 Strawberry Fudge Torte
"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.
