Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray Torte Pans with nonstick cooking spray with flour. Place 8-in. circles of Parchment Paper over centers of pans; set aside. Combine 3/4 cup of the chocolate and oil in Small Batter Bowl. Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds or until melted; stir. In Stainless (4-qt.)

Remove pans to Stackable Cooling Rack; let stand 5 minutes. Invert one torte onto serving platter. Invert second torte onto cooling rack. Cool completely.

  2. Whisk together cream cheese and dissolved coffee in Classic Batter Bowl. Add sugar; mix well. Fold in 2 cups of the whipped topping. Chill in freezer 5 minutes. For ganache, add remaining whipped topping to Small Micro-Cooker®. Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds; add remaining chocolate and stir until melted.

  3. Attach open-star tip to Easy Accent® Decorator; fill with 3/4 cup of the filling. Spread remaining filling into well of torte on platter. Carefully place second torte well-side up over filling. Spread ganache into well. Pipe rosettes over ganache; garnish with espresso beans, if desired.
