Dark Chocolate Sorbet

I made this one a while ago, back in October I think.  It is a beautifully rich sorbet with a hint of cinnamon.  I can’t remember where I found the recipe, perhaps from Not Quite Nigella, a blog that I have been following for a while.

Anyway, this Dark Chocolate Sorbet would be perfect as an accompaniment to any dessert or just on its own.  I served it with some tinned cherries but now that fresh cherries are in season it would make the perfect Christmas time dessert.

Dark Chocolate Sorbet

2 1/2 cups water

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

40g cocoa

85g dark chocolate, finely chopped

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon

In a small saucepan, whisk water and sugar on medium heat until sugar has dissolved.

whisk in cocoa until smooth, simmer for 3 minutes.

Remove from heat and whisk in chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Cool and refrigerate for 8 hours.

Place mixture into ice cream machine and churn for approx 20mins. Once churned pop in freezer to firm up for several hours or overnight.
