This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Steph of A Whisk and A Spoon. She picked Dorie’s Creamy Dark Chocolate Sorbet, which is located on page 431 in Baking: From My Home to Yours. I was pretty interested in making this recipe because I have never had chocolate sorbet before. Of course I have had chocolate ice cream and chocolate gelato, but sorbet is different. This sorbet only had 4 ingredients: milk, water, sugar, and chocolate.
This was extremely easy to make, just throw everything in a pot, bring to a boil, cool, churn, then place in freezer to harden up. What more could a girl ask for, especially when she is craving chocolate 🙂 I made the base on Monday, and then churned (place in ice cream maker) and froze on Tuesday. Before the base was frozen it tasted very yummy, so I can imagine how yummy it will be frozen. The verdict is I think I might actually prefer this over Chocolate Ice Cream. The flavor of the chocolate in the Sorbet was more pronounced, and creamier. Best part is that I made it with Non-Fat Milk so I don’t have to feel guilty about eating it 🙂
