      Yield: 6 Servings
 
      8 oz Ghirardelli Bittersweet
           -Chocolate
    3/4 c  Butter
      4    Egg separated
    3/4 c  Sugar, divided
      1 ts Vanilla
    1/4 c  Unsifted flour
    2/3 c  Walnuts, ground

      1 tb Dark rum (opt)
 
  In heavy saucepan on low heat, melt broken chocolate with butter,
  stirring constantly until smooth; set aside. Beat egg yolks for 1 to
  2 minutes, gradually adding 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla. Beat in
  chocolate mixture. Fold in flour and nuts. Beat egg whites with cream
  of tartar until foamy.
  
  Gradually add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.
  
  Blend a fourth of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture; fold in
  remaining egg whites. Pour into 9-inch springform pan lined with
  parchment paper. Bake at 375 F for 30 to 35 min or until sides start
  to separate from pan but center is still moist. Cool on rack. Remove
  torte from pan. Frost with Chocolate Rum Glaze.
  
  Chocolate Rum Glaze In heavy saucepan on low heat, melt broken
  chocolate with butter, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from
  heat. Stir in corn syrup and rum. Place torte upside-down on a rack
  over tray to catch excess glaze. Spread a very thin layer of glaze
  over top and sides of torte to set surface. Chill 15 minutes to firm
  glaze. Reheat remaining glaze to thin and pour over top and sides of
  torte. When glaze is firm, remove cake from rack to large plate.
  Decorate top and sides with shaved chocolate, if desired. For shiny
  glaze, store cake at room temp until serving time.
