  • Summary

    In the grand tradition of European pastry, this torte alternates layers of crisp butter-wafer cookies with a dense bittersweet chocolate mousse. Best served chilled and thinly sliced, this dessert is elegant; the cookies are store-bought, so it's delightfully easy, too.

    Ingredients

    • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate (preferably 65 percent cacao), chopped
    • 3 cups heavy cream
    • 3 tablespoons sugar
    • 12 ounces crisp oval butter wafer cookies (20 total)
    • Good-quality unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting
