With smoky flavor of espresso matched with bittersweet chocolate, this Chocolate Espresso Torte is the perfect make-ahead holiday dessert. Chocolate and espresso are simply made for each other in this rich and creamy dessert. Cocoa powder gives this soft, creamy cake deep color and intense flavor. The torte itself has lightness to it; it literally disappears on your tongue. It’s remarkable that something so richly flavored can have such a lovely, light texture.
