    This was very good. The compote was wonderful and you could make that as a topping for ice cream.

    This is one of my favorite dessert to make and eat. My family loves it! It is so delicious!! It's light with a beautiful orange fragrant and the taste of the chocolate crust from the wafer is heavenly. The fresh cranberry is not in season, so I substitute it with fresh strawberry. When making the compote, I only cook the strawberry for about 4 to 5 minutes and then remove it from the sauce (I didn't want the strawberry to be too soft) and continue to cook the sauce for 5 minutes (total 10 minutes). It was hard to remove the torte from the ramkin so I served it in the ramkin and sprinkled more chocolate wafer crust on top with the compote. If serving from the ramkin, do not fill it to the rim, leave some space for the compote on top. The chocolate wafer, I had to order it online since all of the groceries and specialty grocery stores did not carry it.
