Chocolate Torte with Whipped Cream and Chocolate Sauce

9 Reviews / 4.8 Average
I am excited to share a wonderful—and healthier—alternative to the traditional flourless chocolate cake dessert. This dish can be served as small round tortes topped with whipped cream (or homemade ice cream) and chocolate sauce, or you can simply turn the recipe into little individual chocolate truffles. This recipe makes about 4 tortes or 12-14 truffles.

Chocolate Truffles Recipe from 100 Days of Real Food

I have a big sweet tooth so there’s rarely a day my fridge doesn’t have some of these in it! They are the perfect way for me to get my chocolate fix when I need one. Plus the chocolate sauce is not only good with this dish, but I’ve also drizzled it on homemade vanilla ice cream and used it to make hot chocolate for my girls as well.

    Has anyone tried these without the honey? I made them and really liked them, but they are sweeter than I prefer. I didn’t know if they would still stick together ok without the honey.

    These are so yummy and just enough chocolate to satisfy a choco holic! Curious for the truffles what would be a serving size recommendation?

    Thank you.

      Hi Lydia. These are really rich. You’ll likely be satisfied with one. :) One to two would be reasonable.

    I made these today with raisins instead of dates (because I couldn’t find dates without added sugar at my grocery store – ughh!) and they turned out great and tasted wonderful!!

    We are on day 7 of our challenge! After an insane night with two 10 month old twins with ear infections I decided to make myself a treat. I used the whipped cream recipe from your book (1 cup cream, 2 tbs syrup, 1 tsp vanilla), added some strawberries and bananas, and was amazed that homemade whipped cream without sugar could taste so good. Next time I will start without syrup and see how that goes. Thankful for easy to make sweet indulgence.

  5. Just wanted to drop a note to say:
    Amy, thanks for replying, above and
    I made these and OH. MY. GOD
    I too need a real food processor

  6. I just made these. I learned I need a true food processor!! lol. I tried 3 different smaller things that I have, and they are not doing the trick! but, I will have to say, im happy I found this recipe, b/c they taste like the flavor larabars I love, chocolate chip cookie dough!! thank you!!

  7. I made these as truffles yesterday for a party… They were AMAZING! better than I ever expected them to even be (since I’m not a huge Lara Bar fan). I used almonds instead of pecans, mostly because they were half the price, and added a dash of rosewater which made them a little Moroccan in flavor and a dash of vanilla to give them more depth. I used my little cookie dough scoop to form the truffles and then rolled half in shredded coconut and half in more cocoa powder. I ended up eating a couple leftovers for breakfast this morning too :-)

    I will definitely be making these on the regular for energy snacks and sweet treat to have around! Would be fun to play with variations too… Maybe add some orange zest, some dried cherries along with the dates, maybe even a spot of kaluah or spiced rum for some extra festivity ;-) thank you thank you for this amazing way to help ease me into some real food snacks and sweets beyond just a piece of fruit… It was a revelation!

      Hi Gab. We’ve not used fresh dates. Their moisture content might throw off the consistency. ~Amy
