small handful chocolate chips

This chocolate torte is a bit of a secret, so shhhh!  It looks and tastes way fancier than it really is.  The key is cooking it until it still has just the slightest bit of under-done in the center.  Check this by tilting the pan and if the center moves ever so slightly, it's just right! 

Add any variations that you like - for Mexican Hot Chocolate add 1/4 tsp chili powder and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  Serve with fruit, homemade whipped cream, or a homemade salted caramel drizzle with just a little crack of sea salt on top.
