DANGER: Dark Chocolate Tort!!!

Hello everyone! Happy Monday!!!

So last week I was watching Giada at Home and saw a super easy recipe for a chocolate tort and thought to myself...hey, that looks super easy and delish! I had forgotten to write down the recipe, but remembered most of the ingredients and here's what I've come up with. Gotta put my own spin on things, but Giada is enough to
inspire anyone!!!!!! I advise anyone who makes this to proceed with caution because it is EXTREMELY addicting, and EXTREMELY rich!!!

Dark Chocolate Tort with a Graham Cracker Crust

12 oz. Dark Chocolate Chips
3?4 c. Heavy Cream
1/4 c. Honey
1 Tlb. Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
1 Tlb. Orange Zest
For the Crust:
9 Graham Crackers
1/4 c. Emerald Almonds {I like the Cinnamon flavored ones}
1 Stick of Butter Cubed at Room Temp
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a spring form pan by lightly greasing the outsides and base with butter.
2. In a food processor pulse graham crackers until crumbled, then add the almonds and pulse until fine. Then add the butter & pulse until combined.
3. Pour graham cracker mixture into spring form pan and press down. Bake for 12 minutes.
4. Allow to cool completely.
5. In a saucepan, heat heavy cream, Butter & Orange Juice & Zest until just starting to boil.
6. In a medium bowl filled with 12 oz. chocolate, pour cream mixture. Let it sit for 10 seconds before you begin to stir. Once the mixture is creamy, pour over the graham cracker crust. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.

Hope you enjoy & until next time...
