Thanksgiving Dessert of the Day: Chocolate Almond Torte

By: Kate Andersen

Here at FoodNetwork.com we’re all for eating dessert first, which is why we’re sharing some of our favorite Thanksgiving Dessert recipes with you each day this week. We’ve already given a shout out to Paula’s perfectly classic Old Fashioned Sweet Potato Pie, but if the chocolate lovers out there are looking for something sweet to sink their teeth into, check out this Chocolate-Almond Torte. Sliced nuts, fresh orange zest and a hint of dark rum spice up the flavors without distracting from the main attraction: just-sweet-enough dark chocolate cake.
