Peanut Butter Torte

This is the dessert I made for a BBQ for Kyle's cousins. I had one cousin come up and hug me when she saw that I brought it and another compare it to heaven, so apparently it's pretty good. I've made this a few times before and it's had an equally good reception each time. This torte is a peanut butter moose in an oreo crust topped with chocolate ganache. It's very velvety rich and best served cold with a big glass of milk. Health disclosure: this has a ton of heavy cream, cream cheese, and peanut butter. Therefore not so great for your physical health, but it works wonders for your mental health. That's how life goes.

Pardon the not so great pictures, but I was enjoying the food and company at the BBQ so I didn't take the time to compose great photos. I got the recipe from my favorite dessert cookbook- Baking From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. I highly recommend every recipe I've tried from that book, but if you can't wait to make this until you buy it, you can find the recipe online here. It's a little more involved than cookies, but worth every minute for the delicious results!
