Tip - Divide this recipe in half if you have a small family, or divide it in half twice for one or two people.
Tip - I actually added a little extra sugar to mine, which made it a little less rich tasting, but if you're on a low sugar diet or you're a fan of dark chocolate, you should like the recipe as is, or even with a little less sugar.
Tip - Add your choice of extra spices and extracts to create your own unique flavor. I added extra almond extract to mine, and it was delicious!
