Ratings & Reviews

    Its really easy to make and we prefer to use the dark chocolate cocoa.We usually make a double batch for family gatherings and found great success in subing the vanilla extract for and orange or raspberry extract. but we cut back to 3 instead of the 4 tsp the recipe asks for. Cherry will be the next one we try.
    This recipe is SOOOOO easy and I get rave reviews every time. A couple variation suggestions, that are tried and true: *put in a pie shell and serve with whipped cream and strawberries. *use Splenda in place of sugar
