Chocolate Sorbet Recipe

This creamy chocolate sorbet tastes too rich to be healthy, but the dark chocolate makes it good for you. Serve this low fat dessert with homemade raspberry sauce.

Ingredients

  • 4 oz good quality dark chocolate bar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1-1/4 cup sugar
  • 4-3/4 Tbsp Dutch process cocoa powder, sifted

Directions

  2. Chop chocolate finely and place in a bowl. Combine water, sea salt and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.

Strain into a clean container; cover with plastic wrap and chill thoroughly in the refrigerator.
