Strawberry Chocolate Torte

"I made this special dessert for my husband on Valentine's Day, and he really enjoyed it," relates Suzanne Zick of Iron Station, North Carolina. "It's pretty simple and tastes wonderful!" In the Taste of Home Test Kitchen, the word was "Yum!" when we tried this refrigerator torte. Tucked inside the chocolate crumb crust is a fluffy chocolate filling with a layer of fresh berries.
