Ultimate Chocolate Sorbet

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp instant espresso or coffee powder
  • 1/2 oz (1/2 square) unsweetened chocolate - chopped

Instructions:

In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, cocoa, honey, espresso powder, chocolate and 1/2 cup water.

Bring to a simmer and cook until the sugar is dissolved, 2-3 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in 1 1/2 cups water.

Transfer to a 13 x 9 inch (33 x 23 cm) baking pan.

Freeze until just frozen, 2-3 hours.

Transfer to a food processor and puree.

Scrape into a quart-size (1 liter capacity) airtight container and freeze until firm.

If the sorbet loses its velvety texture, re-process right before serving.

TIP!

To make the sorbet without a food processor: Freeze the sorbet in a gallon-size sealable plastic bag.

Open the bag slightly after 2 to 3 hours to let the air escape.

Then squish the bag to break up any lumps.
