“From February 2007 Prevention. Here's a great way to satisfy a serious chocolate craving without lots of fat or calories. Next time I'll double the recipe! The sauce is a great way to use up leftover coffee, too. Original directions suggest freezing mixture in an 8x8 pan until nearly frozen, then whirring through a food processor. I used my Cuisinart ice cream maker with great results. Superfine sugar is located on the baking aisle, in my neck of the woods it's made by Imperial and comes in a small pourable canister that also says "quick-dissolving."”
