Sometimes I feel like diving into a rich dessert, head first.

You know the feeling. Maybe you had a bad day and need some comfort. Better yet, you had a great day and want a little reward!

Either way or maybe, just because you love caramel, nuts, and of course chocolate!

Caramel Pistachio Torte layers the richness of milk and yogurt swirled with chocolate chips and bits of pistachios inside. A thick, dark chocolate cookie crust holds its own in flavor.

Together these flavors treat your taste buds to a wild flavor ride! Grab a cup of coffee or better yet, a glass of milk and dig in!
