Chocolate Sorbet

This is my favorite version of sorbet. So, by popular demand...

Chocolate Sorbet

3/4 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ounce bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Combine 2 1/2 cups water, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and cocoa in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook, whisking occasionally, until the sugar dissoves, 4 or 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low; boil gently for 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, set a medium bowl in an ice water bath. Remove the syrup from the heat and add the chocolate and vanilla; whisk unti the chocolate is melted and well incorporated. Pour the mixture into the bowl ove rthe ice water bath and stir occasionally unti well chilled. Transfer to an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

This is YUMMO!!!

I will look for my fruit version for you guys and give some other info on Monday.

This recipe came from Martha Stewart's Healthy Quick Cook book on page 193.
