    This is a very rich chocolate dessert but I am a chocoholic! I threw all the ingredients in a blender, then froze in a glass dish stirring every 1/2 hour. When it was done, I found it to need another 1 1/2 cups of water. I used 1 tsp. almond extract in place of amaretto. Thank you Warning Monkey Bites for sharing. UPDATE: I froze the mixture in popsicle molds and it was awesome!  -  29 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was okay as is for my adult tastes. However, since I made it for my dairy-allergic son, the amaretto just didn't work. I will try it again but with vanilla extract next time.  -  18 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Really good flavor! I mixed the ingredients in a sauce pan over some heat to dissolve the sugar and cocoa powder then chilled and froze as instructed. It was quite soft though, so next time I may only add 1 Tbsp of amaretto to see if it sets up firmer. Really delicious though - very rich.  -  23 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
