Make A Simple & Delicious Brownie Torte This Valentine's Day

I have been doing really well with my fitness goals this year, sticking with healthy food and snack choices. But, Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and even though Jason and I don't really celebrate the holiday, I have decided I will be treating myself to a little cheat dessert that day. I fully plan on indulging in some chocolate, and this delicious Brownie Torte from Golden Blossom Honey will be on the menu for Valentine's Day in the Mahoney household this year. 

Brownie Torte

A yummy chocolate torte filled with walnuts and chocolate chips is rich, decadent, and is a chocolate lovers dream!

2 1/2 Tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
1 egg

  2. Looks legitimately nom! And simple!
    Wouldn't call it a torte, though, methinks torte is when you have layers and fillings between them the European style, this would be a cake. I am intrigued with the usage of honey, because I've always wondered if sponges can be done with it instead of sugar.

    1. I think you are right about the layers. I did just do a quick Google search and it seems some call it a torte made this way and some do it with the layers. I don't care what it's called, I'll eat it all the same ;) Maybe a nice frosting layer on the top would give it even more pow. I'll have to try that! It's not a sponge type consistency, more of a fudge texture, so the honey does well with it. I've dumped condensed milk over spongy cake and if you go light, it soaks it in without making it soggy, so I am sure the same could be done with honey.

    2. Forgot to ask you if all is well in your life, sister? I've noticed that you've been posting more sporadically in recent months and you haven't been posting your usual giveaways as often as in previous years adn months?

    3. Yes, yes, all is fine here. I just really burnt myself out on blogging the last few months of the year and decided that I was going to take some time to myself the first few months of this year. I let my health slip, so I've been spending more time at the gym trying to get back on track physically and mentally. We are gearing up to rip out and renovate our master bathroom, so once that project is complete, I think I'll be ready to get back into blogging full time. I'm just so tired, I don't have it in me to do it every day right now. I do have a few recipes and a giveaway lined up to go live over the next week. I just need to put the final tweaks on those posts, so stay tuned ;) Thanks for your concern, dahlink ♥

    4. I do always notice :)
      Ooh, a bathroom! Such an exciting project! Did we paint the kid's room yet?

      Delete
    5. I'm not too excited about the bathroom, though it has been needing an overhaul since we moved in. It's all the plumbing and tiling that's going to set me on edge. We did get Allison's room painted. I just have a few more touches to make to the room before it's really complete. If she can keep it clean, I'll share a few snaps either here or on Facebook for you :)

    6. but then again you can turn it into a fancy hotel bathroom with recessed lights and all kinds of glamorous things :) I positively despise my bathroom... the whole house for that matter LOL

      Delete
    7. Recessed lights would be fabulous, but our ceiling is at an angle. We thought a skylight, maybe, but I really don't feel like spending more than we have to on it. I am hoping that when Allison goes off to college in 6 years, we can downgrade in house size. I'd really love me a one story house that doesn't take forever to clean each day.

      But, dahlink, you have such lovely blues in your house, I am sure you decorate it so it is cozy, no? I'm sure you have just the right touch to turn any dump into something fit for a king!

    8. What? You can clean your house each day? Who does that? :) I do it maybe three times a week and goodbye Charlie :) You could put lights around the mirror, those are ever so lovely and make us look prettier in the mirror.

      That is only my own chamber which is kinda like my prison cell when I come to think about it since I don't really venture downstairs when others are awake :)

      Delete
    9. I do. When you have 3 dogs, 2 kids and, well, Jason, it's kind of a must to clean daily :( Mondays I deep clean the entire house, so the rest of the week I can just spot clean where needed, then sweep and mop each day.

      I'd love to hide in my chambers and ignore everyone else throughout the day. Methinks you are living a very charmed life :)

    10. Who does that? Well, my Bollywood Princess is just like Theresa. Cleaning every day. Just an hour ago she told me off for messing up 'her' fridge. :)

      Delete
    11. Sorry Blue, but when we have to clean it daily, it does become "our" property. You are just permitted to use it from time to time ;)

  3. I hsve been hungry since the WEE hours I guess this chocolate heaven was waiting for me. Pleaseee email this to me :)

  4. If you have to cheat may as well use Valentines day. I'll ignore the day and the cat will make fun of it as always lol
