Here is a chocolate muffin mix enhanced with chopped almonds, fresh orange juice and zest for a dessert that tastes as good as homemade.

Chocolate-Orange Torte


1/2 Cup slivered almonds
4 oranges
1 20oz package double chocolate muffin mix

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 inch round cake pan.

Finely chop the almond. Grate 1 teaspoon orange zest from one of the oranges and strips of peel from another to use for garnish. Squeeze 1 1/2 cups juice from the oranges.

Prepare the muffin mix according to the label directions but substitute 3/4 cup orange juice for water and blend the chopped almond and grated zest. Pour into pan. Bake 25 Minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool torte in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar anf the remaining 3/4 cup Orange juice. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced and thickened, about 10 minutes. To serve, spoon the
sauce over the torte and garnish with the orange peel strips.
