This recipe combines two of my addictions... chocolate and coffee! A drizzle of fudge or caramel ice cream topping and some toasted almonds and you'll be smiling from ear to ear! A cool, refreshing dessert on hot summer days or with a steaming cup of hot coffee in the winter.

* Time does not include chill time of 3 hours.
