Chocolate Cherry Torte

Mom has made this sweet treat for years. Since she knows how much my sister and I like it, she's still happy to serve this torte when we're home for a meal. The chocolate-covered graham cracker crust and fluffy filling are extra-special.—Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

    This is a tasty dessert! Love the chocolate covered grams for the crust! I have made it with strawberry pie filling for my family!

    I love this dessert. Whenever I get together with my brother and his family, they always request this. I like the chocolate/cherry combo.

    Very good except I don't use dream whip as it contains hydrogenated oils so I made my own whipped topping.

    Delicious! Take out of refrigerator for 15 minutes before serving so that crust can soften. Otherwise it can stick in the pan.

    You can substitute other pie fillings too and use just plain graham crackers. This is a very nice dessert! Try blueberry or raspberry!
