Notes

  • Any variety of Dove Chocolate can be used in place of the Strawberry Swirl flavor.
  • Instant espresso granules are used to intensify the chocolate flavor. They can be found in the coffee aisle of most specialty supermarkets. If you cannot find the product or do not have it on hand, simply omit the espresso granules and water from the recipe
