Excellent taste and really simple to make. I also used 2/3 cup of sugar and water it does improve the texture and I chilled it overnight before I dug in. Yum
Powdered chocolate makes this even easier to make. I use ~1/2 cup Guittard Sweet Ground Chocolate. It's not cocoa, it is literally ground chocolate -- the kind you sprinkle on a latte.
Really delicious! The combination of chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla and a hint of chili powder (not enough to know what it is -- enough to say, "What *is* that?!") is perfection! I cut the simple syrup back to 2/3 cup each water and sugar (versus 3/4); it doesn't need to be that sweet, and improves the texture, I think.
Excellent and incredibly easy. My 20-year-old son convinced me to try this when he saw it in the New York Times. It's a bit rich in flavor, so we usually serve it with some whipped cream.
really surprisingly good.
