Last weekend it was Chris’s turn to be celebrated so we hosted our favorite friends for desserts and drinks.
I made this chocolate almond torte that I now make for almost every party. People of all ages love it. I asked Chris to cut out a design from card stock for the top of the cake. I said maybe a “C” for Chris? But he had other plans in mind.
I also served my mom’s baked brie recipe which I had forgotten all about. It was a huge hit. I plan on making it more often.
While all of the kids were upstairs watching a movie our friends had us participate in a mad lib they created all about Chris. It was a hoot!

Close to serving time bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

You can half or quarter this recipe for a smaller wheel or slice of brie.
