TWD: Chocolate-Banded Ice Cream Torte

This is the perfect week to make this recipe since this is a birthday month for so many of my family and friends. This is my first post for Tuesday's with Dorie, I just received the cookbook in the mail last Friday and I don't think I put it down once this weekend. This is also the perfect one to start with because my mom can eat it too (she must eat gluten-free)! Thanks to Amy at Food, Family, and Fun for a great recipe choice!

For the ice cream layers in the torte I chose to go with Dorie's "playing around" options and chose a vanilla ice cream filled with fudge chunks and mini peanut butter cups because I figure if its going to be decadent I might as well go with chocolate all the way. Plus this needs to feed at least 10 people, so I figure they will be small slices anyway.

I promise to post the final picture all frozen and ready to be eaten later on this week when the celebrations begin. But for now, please settle on the layering process photos and pray that I can get the torte out of the pan in one piece :)

Welcome to the group. I'm pretty new, and have enjoyed every week. I served our torte to a family dinner last evening and everyone raved! It's very dressy and with those ingredients how can you fail? I love the flavors you chose.

That book is damn heavy isn't it? I was shocked when mine came in the mail. Your torte looks great - way to go!
