turtle dark chocolate brownie torte

I have a tendency to read books where there is a lot of stress baking and tea drinking.  I do not know why but that is what seems to happen.  My Beloved and I have been listening to a lot of audiobooks lately.  It is easy to do with the library.   We occasionally buy and audiobook but the library really is where we find most of them.

We were listening to an audiobook and brownie baking came up.  My Beloved looked at me and said, "Brownies?"  This is what came from that.  A dark chocolate torte made with almond flour and a put sliced homemade turtles on top.  These did not last 24 hours.  Yes, that good.

turtle dark chocolate brownie torte

3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

2 1/2 tablespoons butter

1 large egg

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

A pinch of salt

2 tablespoons almond flour

10 small turtle candies (carmel, pecan, and milk chocolate) cut into thin slices

Preheat 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Butter and "flour" an 8 inch pan.

Melt 3/4 cup chocolate and butter in a saucepan until chocolate is melted.  Mix in the sugar, vanilla, egg, and flour.  Pour into the prepared pan.  Put the sliced turtles on top.  Bake for 17 to 20 minutes or until a knife poked in comes out clean.

These are lovely with tea.
