3 (2-ounce) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bars, chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch springform pan. Coarsely chop all but 12 Nestlé Treasures; set aside.
  2. Melt morsels and butter in a large metal bowl set over a saucepan of gently boiling water; stir until smooth. Remove bowl from heat; cool mixture for about 10 minutes or until lukewarm. Stir in sugar, vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in flour until thoroughly blended.
  3. Beat egg whites with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt in a large mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Beat 1/4 of egg whites into chocolate mixture to lighten. Fold in remaining egg whites gently but thoroughly. Gently fold in chopped Nestlé Treasures. Pour into prepared pan.
  4. Bake on middle oven rack for 35 to 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted about 2-inches from edges comes out slightly sticky. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove side of pan; cool completely. Invert onto rack; remove bottom of pan. While torte cools, prepare Ganache Glaze.
  5. For Ganache Glaze: Bring whipping cream to a boil in a small saucepan; add chopped chocolate. Reduce heat to low. Stir until completely smooth. Let stand for about 10 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
  6. Invert torte onto serving platter; spread Ganache Glaze evenly over top and sides. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until ready to serve.
  7. To Serve, cut torte into 12 wedges. Place remaining Nestlé Treasures on top of each wedge. Drizzle serving plates with caramel topping; place torte wedge on top. Sprinkle with gold dust or gold flakes.
