Chocolate Fruit Torte Dessert

My Review:
This recipe is really yummy, quality worthy of a birthday dessert. It is a seasonal (summer) dish as it requires a large assortment of fresh fruit and is a chilled rather than hot. My sister picked this one out for her birthday dinner one year, and I made sure to hang onto the recipe after!
