Orange Chocolate Hazelnut Torte with Hazelnut Caramel Topping

Orange Chocolate Hazelnut Torte raw, vegan dessert

Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do. And I might have gone a little over the top here but boy, is it awesome! And the holidays are coming up so it’s time to have some fun. You are never going to hear me tell you to have a raw dessert for breakfast but every once in a while, it’s fun to indulge a bit. Why would you serve chocolate cake when you can serve this?

Hazelnuts, cacao and orange, oh my! The crazy thing is that this beautiful torte is relatively easy to throw together and will keep well so you can make it ahead of time if you are entertaining. The chocolate layer is an orange-cacao ganache studded with hazelnuts and the top layer is a orange caramel studded with hazelnuts! It is orange-chocolate-hazelnut heaven.

As we enter into the holiday season, it’s fun to have some extra special recipes in your repertoire and this one will fit the bill perfectly.

    I made this torte for dessert for our Christmas eve dinner (served along side “regular” apple pie, cookies, etc.). It was a nice alternative and my family liked it. A little sliver goes a long way as it is very dense and rich. The torte was fun/easy to make and I recommend it.

    ….and, I concur with all the above comments. Your recipes are fab, your photos edible, and the end result, of this recipe, absolutely scrummy. Mine never look quite so good, but the taste – yum!! Thank you so much Susan, you’re a treasure, and oh so generous.

    Thankyou for this recipe! Just finished making it and between-licks gave me a very promising outlook. Will bring it to a dinner party tomorrow night. Can’t wait!

    I love it and can’t wait to make it! Just… Hazelnuts are reaaally expensive in my country, do you think I could use a mix of hazelnuts, almonds, pecans and/or cashews?? Suggestions?
    Thank you!!

    I have cooked a new recipe from Rawmazing since October 2014 when my husband and I began our new journey. I love the pictures and detailed instructions. Thank you for your cooking experiments and success of your recipes. We love them and can’t wait to make the Orange Chocolate Hazelnut Torte with Hazelnut Caramel Topping. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Wow! This looks like the perfect recipe for Thanksgiving dessert! My extended (meat and potatoes) family will flip out over the deliciousness and I won’t tell them it’s RAW until afterwards 🙂 This Tort will be the talk of the night! Thanks Susan!
