    Dee514's Note:

    A fantastic, make ahead, "ice cream like" dessert! Very rich, but not too sweet. A good recipe for those times when you want an impressive dessert. This recipe comes from "La Dolce Vita" by Michele Scicolone Prep time does not include 8 hour minium freezing time. Cook time is for the sauce.
