Chocolate Ice Milk Sundaes

READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by LonghornMama

From February 2007 Prevention. Here's a great way to satisfy a serious chocolate craving without lots of fat or calories. Next time I'll double the recipe! The sauce is a great way to use up leftover coffee, too. Original directions suggest freezing mixture in an 8x8 pan until nearly frozen, then whirring through a food processor. I used my Cuisinart ice cream maker with great results. Superfine sugar is located on the baking aisle, in my neck of the woods it's made by Imperial and comes in a small pourable canister that also says "quick-dissolving."

I recently made some macaroons that called for superfine sugar, but couldn't find any at the store. I found a suggestion to give regular granulated sugar a whir in the blender to get a superfine texture. It worked perfectly! Just remember to give the contents a minute to settle before removing the lid or you will get a noseful of sugar dust. I can't wait to try this recipe with soymilk! I'll be back soon to give it some stars!
