“An absolutely elegant dessert, perfect for following a hearty meal in the summer. Light, yet still rich enough to be dessert, and the unusual combination of grapefruit perfectly complements the dark chocolate flavor. If you omit the honey I suggest you add more sweetener (I use honey for the flavor) and for a more "milk chocolate" flavor add a bit more (soy)milk or cream (about a 1/4 cup).”
