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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

Very tasty though I did change it I used the bones of this recipe. I used 3/4 cups sugar 3/4 cup of crushed raspberries an extra 1/4 cup of water and a handful of chocolate chips chopped up. Turned out really good. We ate it all though it could easily serve 4 or 5. Read More

I substituted 2 tbs vanilla for the amaretto and it never froze I wound up with more of a chocolate syrup mixture. It's very chocolately more like dark chocolate I think I'll use a milk chocolate powder next time. Read More
