    stormylee's Note:

    A wonderful frozen, make-ahead dessert for chocolate lovers! This recipe was developed by Ms. Henna Ström; it won 1st prize in a chocolate recipe competition organised by Kodin Kuvalehti magazine! Cooking time is freezing time, which in turn is an estamate, as I usually make this in the morning, put in the freezer, and serve at dinner time! Do not keep this in the freezer for days though, as the texture will suffer.

      Absolutely scrumptious! Easy step-by-step instructions. I got the preparation done much quicker by doing steps 6, 10, and 12 simultaneously.
