Is it even possible to have Cacao 5 different ways? Of course.. In this torte we showcase just how you can use cacao in its purest form in so many ways. This torte is a Super Cacao Torte!
1)Cacao Nibs in the Base
2)Cacao Butter in the base
3)100% Cacao paste, in the filling
4)Traditional Cacao powder in the filling
5)Whole fat cacao powder sprinkled on top
You can make all of these ingredients at home from the Cacao bean, including Cacao butter! Check out the page Cacao and all is there and the blog how to enjoy Cacao all day long!
This torte is more then dessert - it is a meal in itself and is so nutritious and contains all the powerful health benefits of cacao. I love making it as its easy and quick once you have the ingredients on hand and it allows one to deep dive into Cacao. When eating it, the heart opens, the taste buds sing and the body simply says 'Thank you'..
