Chocolate Sorbet

As I mentioned last week, I have quite a few posts in draft phase just waiting for me to carve out some time to write them up. One thing I’ve been making a lot of this year is ice cream. I’ve only posted two recipes at this point, but I have another 4 waiting to be published.

Chocolate Sorbet

I have been trying all different kinds of ice cream treats. Full-fat custard based ice creams, milk based ice creams without eggs, and of course some sorbets. I was drawn to this recipe because it only uses three ingredients. There’s no dairy and no eggs, just water, sugar, and cocoa powder.

Be sure you use a great cocoa powder here because that’s where all of your flavor is coming from. While I was unpacking my kitchen a couple weeks ago, I discovered that I had 7 different kinds of cocoa powder. I might have a problem…

This sorbet is creamy and light with an intense chocolate flavor. Hubby commented that it tasted like frozen chocolate syrup. I enjoyed it best with some fresh berries mixed in or some whipped cream dolloped on top. Hubby asked me to make this again, but I told him there were too many ice cream recipes on my to-make list right now. I am sure this will get made again because of the intensely chocolate results for such an easy recipe.

    They’re so good. You should definitely make them. I would also recommend not rolling them too thin. The thicker ones are much better. I wish mine had been about twice as thick as they were. Guess I’ll just have to make them again!
