The Best Chocolate Walnut Torte – It is all about filling..

Yes, for this post it is all about fillings. However, out there in our real life it is all about feelings.

It is January 20, 2017. and in the USA it is the most important day – Inauguration Day!

Congratulations USA! Donald Trump is officially the 45th U.S. president!

For this special day full of feelings let me make the best chocolate walnut torte with so many fillings that will let you forget

reality and enjoy my chocolate drama. After all isn’t a democracy all about “the chocolates”? If you disagree with me I will respectfully call you “deplorable”.

Just kidding…or not…I am not sure how I feel about people who don’t like chocolate.
