White Chocolate Torte

White Chocolate Torte – cream, chocolate torte with white decadent crumb gingernut biscuit base, and garnish with fresh Raspberries and chocolate chips!

I really love white chocolate. As a child, I would always reach for it more often than milk chocolate. I know, crazy huh? So, today I involved my inner child with chocolate torte is white!


This white chocolate torte had just 6 ingredients (one of them being a Greece-style yogurt for dessert even creamier and lighter!), and very easy to make.

This Torte require a minimum of 4 hours of winter time, so make sure you have enough time to spare. If you want you can refrigerate torte this overnight, and serve the next day.
