    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a must if you are a coffee lover. If you planning to make a double recipe make in two separate pans. You can make this a day ahead and keep covered in the freezer, just defrost slighty and scrape with a fork to loosen. Cooking time is freezing time.

      I mixed the frozen granita with some Lite Cool Whip and Hershey's Chocolate syrup. Mmmmmmm sooooo good!!! Kept me wide awake throughout the rest of the day.

      The technique for this was quite good and it had a nice texture but I found it very sweet and I only used 1/2 cup sugar. People with a real sweet tooth might enjoy it more but I found it overwhelming. I can see how it would be a nice end to a summer meal, but the sugar might need some adjusting.
