I knew I owned a spring form pan. Maybe I didn’t. Maybe I always just borrowed my Mom’s spring form pan. I realized this when it was time to put the first layer of chocolate in the pan. And my Mom was two and a half hours away. What to do.....what to do. I decided to use a pound cake pan that the bottom lifted out off of the sides. I had serious doubts. But it actually worked. AMAZING. And then I found the spring form pan that I knew I owned.
I further discovered that I do not own a whisk. Who doesn’t own a whisk??? I remember throwing it away because it had rust on it. I knew I did not own a whisk. So I used my wire beater from my Kitchen Aid mixer.
The torte was pretty and was very easy to make. I think I would prefer in the future to just use mint chocolate chip ice cream directly from the container rather than creating a flavored ice cream. That would be like crack in my house.
I'd like to show you pictures of everything, but my internet is being a total piece tonight and doesn't have the capacity to upload too many pictures......something about a former hurricane now a tropical depression has a way of doing that to a signal.
