TWD: Dark Chocolate Sorbet

Creamy Dark Chocolate Sorbet

by Holly on July 26, 2011

Well, we are away on vacation and my internet access has been a bit scattered. I’ve attempted to blog from my iPhone, but that just isn’t cutting it, so I’m grateful to have a few minutes this morning to finish up my post for this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie. It’s been a while again since I participated, but I’ve so looked forward to this week’s pick for the Dark Chocolate Sorbet chosen by darling Steph over at A Whisk and A Spoon, that I just couldn’t miss out.

If my sorbet looks very soft and melty, there is good reason – it has been positively sweltering here in Utah and it was tough to get a good picture without the sorbet turning into a creamy sorbet soup – which, either way was delicious.

I don’t actually have an ice cream maker any more (mine broke a year or so ago) so I simply followed all the steps through the chilling, then let the sorbet chill until it started freezing, scraped it into the bowl of my stand mixer and whipped some air into it with the paddle attachment before freezing the whipped sorbet again and serving. I could have easily just drank this as a soup or some kind of smoothie too and been fine with that though. It is fabulously creamy and chocolatey.

For more fun things to do with sorbet, visit the Tuesdays with Dorie site. I’ll be back later this week hopefully with more posts, but just in case I don’t make it back to internet before vacation is over then I’ll just say ‘see you soon!’

the best

Melted was just as good as solid. Spoon or straw. The flavor was a lot more intense than I expected.

I don’t have an ice cream maker and this is AWESOME! I’ve been sticking to fruity sorbets feeling sorry for myself that I couldn’t make a dreamy, creamy ice cream but now I can! Woohoo!!!
