Decadent Chocolate Raspberry Torte

1 package (19-21 ounces) brownie mix (plus ingredients to make cake-like brownies)

1/2 cup water

1 package (3 ounces) raspberry gelatin

1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam

1 package (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate morsels

1 container (16 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed

1 cup raspberries (optional)

1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Fresh mint leaves (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a stoneware bar pan with 13-inch piece of parchment paper. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions for cake-like brownies; pour batter into pan, spreading evenly. Bake 20-25 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean; cool 10 minutes. Using edges of paper, carefully lift brownie onto cooling rack; cool completely.

2. In small cooker, microwave water on HIGH 1-2 minutes or until boiling. Add gelatin; stir until dissolved. Add jam; whisk until smooth. Invert brownie onto smooth side of a large cutting board; remove paper. Prick brownie at 1/2-inch intervals. Using a pastry brush, brush brownie evenly with gelatin mixture. Trim 1/4 inch around edge of brownie; discard edges. Cut brownie crosswise into 3 equal layers.

3. Place chocolate morsels in a bowl; microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 2-2 1/2 minutes, stirring after each 30-second interval, until melted and smooth. Immediately fold half of the whipped topping into chocolate, mixing until blended. Fold in remaining whipped topping; mix until smooth. (Mixture will be very thick.)

4. To assemble torte, place one brownie layer on a oval platter. Attach open star tip to decorator; fill with filling mixture. Pipe a straight border around edge of brownie layer. Using a large scoop, place 3 scoops of filling down center. Spread filling evenly to border. Top with second brownie layer. Repeat filling as above. For third layer, pipe a decorative border around edge. Spread any remaining filling down center. Arrange raspberries over top, if desired; sprinkle with almonds. Garnish with mint leaves, if desired. For a cooler serving temperature, refrigerate 30 minutes. Slice using a serrated knife.
