Yesterday I made a luscious chocolate sorbet which is part of menu 1 for the supper club. Really easy to make with only 3 main ingredients (if you can call water an ingredient!). 60% dark chocolate melted with a sugar syrup which can be flavoured with a liqueur if you wish; I used an orange liqueur in mine which is reminiscent of a dark chocolate orange one gets at Christmas time as a stocking filler. This recipe is so easy I want to share it with you, dear reader, so here we go:
170gms plain chocolate (at least 60%) blitz this in a food processor fitted with a metal blade
200gms castor sugar mixed with 500mls water. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes
Flavour of your choice to taste. Add the boiled sugar syrup to your chocolate and whiz for 2 minutes. Strain your mixture into a bowl and leave to cool. Once cooled, place mixture into an ice cream make and follow instructions. If you don't have an ice cream maker, place mixture in a plastic container and place on a shelve in the freezer. When the outer edges of the sorbet are starting to freeze, take out and mix thoroughly to distribute the ice crystals and return to the freezer to freeze fully. Remove from the freezer for 10 minutes prior to serving as this will make spooning it a lot easier plus it will allow the full flavour of your sorbet to be better appreciated! Do let me know how you get on!
