S'mores Torte

I fully realize this is a blog pretty much devoted to losing weight and leading a generally healthy and nutritious life. But, I've learned that in order for me to do that, I need to be able to stray from time to time. (Not necessarily as much as I do in between games, but a little bit here and there).

In the checkout line at the grocery story (which is literally, right next door to me & Steve, as I've mentioned before), I was taunted by and finally picked up the Better Homes & Garden Desserts magazine special. $9.95 later and a very impressive array of desserts to try, I walked home and thumbed through the magazine. I did this the day before the last game ended and knew I wanted to make something for girl's night dessert.

I was pulled in my the S'mores Torte, described as "a childhood flavor with a grown-up flair." The picture alone is what sent me over the edge. See for yourself:

I mean how could you not be motivated to try this after seeing how delish it looks?

I made this last Wednesday, prepped it in the morning and let it freeze during the day while I worked. And then just before I had to go over to the twin's place for girl's night, I brought this with me and finished it off there. Putting it in the broiler seemed crazy. It's an ice cream cake for god's sake! But, I followed the instructions and put it in the broiler until it browned on top.

This is what mine looked like:

I'm not gonna lie, this was one of the best desserts I've ever made. And I highly recommend giving it a try! It was pretty easy to make and a huge crowd pleaser.
