      In a medium saucepan, dissolve sugar in water and vanilla. Bring to a boil, let boil one minute, then remove from heat.

      Pour into a 9" x 9" baking pan.

      Cover loosely and freeze for two hours, until it is frozen at the edges. Scrape the ice with a fork, mixing it towards the center of the dish.
    5. 5
      Repeat every 30 to 40 minutes, until the granita is completely frozen (the texture should be somewhere between slushy and flaky).

      Keep frozen until ready to serve. Should the granita become too solid before serving, use a fork to loosen it, and let sit for a few minutes to soften slightly.
    7. 7
      QUICK FREEZE METHOD: Freeze mixture into an ice cube tray; once solid, use a food processor or ice shaver to flake.

      This was soooo good! It was unexpectedly rich and very chocolatey. I am calorie conscious, so I used 3/8 cup (84g) Splenda Baking Blend instead of the sugar and the calories per serving were reduced to a mere 77. Thanks for the great recipe!
