Chocolate Granita Ingredients

  • 1 cup brewed coffee (regular or decaffeinated)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 2/3 blocks (5 oz) American Heritage Chocolate blocks, finely chopped (or 3/4 cup AHC drink mix)


  • 1 In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the coffee, water, and sugar. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, whisk in the chocolate, and continue to whisk until melted, about one minute.
  • 2 Transfer mixture to a square glass or metal baking dish. Place on a level surface in freezer. After about 45 minutes, use a fork to begin to scrape the granita. Leave granita in freezer, scraping with a fork every 30 minutes until a fluffy, snow-like texture has formed, about 3 to 4 hours. Once the entire granita has reached this consistency, it is ready to serve.
