Mmm dessert! The topic of so many of our conversations on Instagram! Gemma posted this 3 layer chocolate torte that her mother in law Geralyn made last week and we had loads of requests asking for the recipe. Turns out it’s really simple!! Gemma’s mother in law used to be a caterer so she really knows her stuff – dessert at their house always involves at least 4 options. Geralyn has kindly shared the recipe. Enjoy!
