Last week I decided to make this chocolate torte as a dessert for our family night. My kids love baking with me, so I pulled up some chairs, handed them both a mixing spoon, and we all went to work. Things were going great, until I stepped away to take a phone call. Note to self: never step away leaving the kids with the baking supplies! When I came back my kitchen looked like a flour and cocoa tornado had torn through my house.

I wasn’t sure whether to be completely horrified or utterly amused, because the looks on my kids’ faces was priceless. Luckily I was able to save the torte, because it was so amazingly rich and delicious that it was worth every single minute of the long process of cleaning up!
