    This granita is flavored with both cocoa powder and semisweet chocolate, complemented with cinnamon and nutmeg. It's guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth! This comes from a recipe posted in several places around the Web. Cooking time is freezing time.

    1. 1
      In a medium saucepan, dissolve sugar in water and vanilla. Bring to a boil, let boil one minute, then remove from heat.
    2. 2
      Stir remaining ingredients into sugar water until it is well mixed and chocolate is completely melted.
    3. 3
      Pour into a 9" x 9" baking pan.
    4. 4
      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).
    6. 6
      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!
