    This tastes awesome, my chocoholic husband even loved it. The beans definatly need to be blended to break the bean skins down, they can not be mashed which i tried first.  -  14 Jul 2010

    Altered ingredient amounts. I added an extra 1/4 cup of sugar, taking it to one cup because the mixture wasn't quite sweet enough.  -  21 Apr 2010
