Mini Flourless Chocolate Tortes

The big stuff…

How much I love and appreciate my family and friends.

The realization of how much I could be affecting my client’s lives.

The realization of how much my clients are affecting my life.

Trying to figure out what I REALLY want to do with my life.

My attempt at trying to find a level of compassion and understanding with each person I meet

The small stuff…

I really want to cut my hair.

I really don’t want to clean the house.

I wonder what I should make for dinner?

Could I blog about what I decide to make for dinner?

We should just go out to eat.

  7. Fill the muffin tins half full with the chocolate mixture.
  8. Bake at 325 for 7-10 minutes. Mine were perfect at 9 minutes.
  9. Allow to cool and top with ganache and a raspberry.

    Please excuse me while I go hate my diet for a little while. ;-)

  21. Meg Miller Januski says:

    Can these be made ahead and frozen?

  22. They looked good when they came out, but were very egg-y. Maybe replace some of the egg with baking powder, or only use egg yolks?

  23. Jeanne Durand says:

    Can these be frozen after baking without the ganache?

  24. This looks amaazing!
