I made this amazing chocolate torte for Thanksgiving. Traditional? No. Delicious, yes! With my low carb diet, my husband's gluten free diet, and my son's standard small boy pickiness, it can be tricky to find food that suits all of us. But chocolate we ALL love, so I wanted to make some sort of dense, rich, flourless dessert that would be the perfect end to our celebratory meal.
We all loved the torte, and they were STUNNED to find out that it was sugar free. The key, of course, is the quality low carb chocolate. I used Lily’s Original Dark Chocolate, which is sweetened with stevia. You can buy it from Whole Foods, and it's also available from Amazon and Netrition. They have various flavors but the original version is all you need for this recipe!

How to Make a Low Carb Chocolate Torte
To make the torte, break up two bars of low carb chocolate and place them in a bowl together with some butter. I think this is a pretty good start to any dessert!!!
Cook at 50% power in the microwave until almost melted, then stir until fully melted. Set aside.
Beat until fully combined, then add the chocolate and butter mixture and beat again until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a greased 9″ pie pan, and bake in a preheated oven until the center is firm but slightly wobbly. Don't worry if it sinks slightly in the center – this is normal!
Let the torte cool completely, then cover and place in the fridge until required.
Serve with whipped cream and/or a sprinkle of confectioner's Swerve.
Doesn't it look gorgeous? And it tastes SOOOOO good.
