It wasn’t very good and I was generous with the sweeteners. After a waltz through the pantry I chose to add a couple Tablespoons of sweetened coconut for a little oomph. Here’s hoping.

Spoon the chocolate concoction into a container to freeze for at least 2 hours.

It looks good anyway. Now time to try it.
