Usually when any of my friends ask me anything about baking, cooking or ingredients, I have some sort of well thought out answer and even other suggestions just in case. That makes me feel like I know what I’m doing in the kitchen. It makes me feel smart.
But every now and then I’ll learn something new that makes me feel, for the lack of a better word, dumb.
I didn’t know that there was such a thing as chocolate sorbet. I knew there were strawberry sorbets, and lemon sorbets and all kinds of other fruity sorbets. I thought sorbets were a fruity thing. Turns out… that’s not true. So I felt anti baking savvy.
But now I know. I’m a bit wiser, I’ve learned something new. Silver lining, I’m a big fan.
This sorbet is not for the faint of chocolate hearts. It is very rich, delectably creamy and sinfully chocolatey. If you’re going through a heat wave (like we in the South are) this is the way to get your chocolate fix without having to turn on your oven!! Whew!
Simple, quick, chocolatey and cool. A must make. I added some peppermint extract (about half of the recommended amount) and contemplated adding in chopped mint candies but decided against it at the last minute. So tasty!!
