      If your looking for a no-fail sorbet recipe that will get raves from your dinner guests, this is the one! This recipe is from The Ultimate Ice Cream Book by Bruce Weinstein. It’s one I have been making for years and is excellent! What I love about this recipe is you don’t even need to use an ice cream maker. I make it and place it in porcelain tureen in the freezer. Try it, I guarantee your going to love it!

      OH MY. I can't have sugar either, so used Stevia and leftover coffee (instead of water)... this is incredible. I haven't been able to have chocolate for several years now and I just had an incredible taste sensation. Thank you so much!

      Unbelievably good. "Rich and intense" doesn't even begin to cover it! I made the espresso version, with a heaping teaspoon of instant espresso powder. I also threw in a quarter cup of rum at the end of the freezing cycle -- the alcohol keeps it from freezing too hard, and what's not to like about the combination of chocolate and rum! This is a keeper, and the easiest chocolate sorbet recipe I've found yet. Thanks for posting!
