Rich! This is for Chocolate Lovers! Great to share betwen Lovers for Valentines Day! I used 1 tray of ice cubes and 1 glass of cold water in place of the 2 1/3 cups water. Put all the ingredients in my vita mix. Blender till smooth. Placed in the freezer for a couple of hours stirring every hour till nice and thick. I used this method because I don`t own an ice cream maker. Just goes to show it can be done! I didn`t even have to shop for any ingredients. It`s good to know something this delish can be made with what we have in our cupboards. Delish!
