This recipe has been a staple in my house for years. Whenever anyone new tastes it, they want the recipe. It's light and tasty and best of all, does not require turning on the oven. In fact I'm making it today. The only complaint, not enough chocolate syrup. We just leave the chocolate out on the table so people can add their own.

This deceptively rich dessert offers a refreshing minty contrast to a grilled dinner.
