Found this recipe in a recent issue of my Mom's Woman's World magazine. Served it at a BBQ I hosted and it was a smash hit. Don't let the cayenne scare you off. The heat is very subtle. That's how you make frozen chocolate "hot"! You can still make the recipe without it, but it just won't be the same.
