It is always fun to try new deserts and, of course, our families love it when we are motivated to do make dessert. The strawberry (my favorite) and cranberry frozen desserts are delicious, especially in the summer heat. The other chocolate dessert recipes are delicious, and there is no bad time for chocolate. These are each a bit different, and I hope you will find one to try.
