This past week was HOT. There was very little baking going on in my house. Though, I was totally willing to get behind some sorbet.
I think, that if you are using the strict definition, this isn't sorbet. A sorbet doesn't generally contain dairy. Whatever you call it, however, it is lovely. This was a snap to put together. It requires four ingredients - water, dark chocolate, sugar, and milk of some form (cream all the way down to skim works.) You boil it for five minutes, stick it in the fridge for a while, and then churn it in the freezer.
The taste of this one is fabulous. I did, however, have some texture issues. I think I didn't cool my base down enough before I churned it. It was very soft before it went into the freezer, and it ended up being a little icy. I would make this again in a heartbeat. I can see adding some fruity extracts to this one or varying the intensity of the chocolate.
A "scoop" each for The Boy and The Girl. It was too soft to really scoop well.
Thanks to Steph of A Whisk and a Spoon for choosing this recipe.
