    Annacia's Note:

    A lot of people have ice cream makers collecting dust in their basement. Go ahead and get it out. You know you want to. Cook time is chill and freeze time.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    batch

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup sugar (more if you like)
    • 3/4 cup cocoa (Hershey's Dark is good)
    • 2 cups water for low-fat sorbet (or milk (skim, 1% or 2%, your choice)
    • 2 ounces dark chocolate (can double if you like) or 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (can double if you like)
    • 1 pinch cayenne (or more, entirely optional but is a nice surprise in a frozen dish)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine the sugar and cocoa in a saucepan to get rid of lumps. Stir in 2 cups of water or milk and put it over medium-high heat. (Feel free to make part of this coffee if you like ( *whistles innocently*)
    2. 2
      Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes. Take off heat and stir in the chocolate. Stir until it’s melted.
    3. 3
      Let the mixture cool, and then refrigerate until cold.
    4. 4
      Pour into ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. The one I used was so easy: pour in, turn on, wait for magic to happen.
    5. 5
      Store in freezer for extra firmness.

      So easy to make this great chocolate dessert & although I did use just the smallest amount of cayenne, it was enough to notice &, surprisingly, we enjoyed it! I also doubled the amount of chocolate, splitting it half & half between the dark & semisweet! Very, very nice, & a definite keeper of a recipe!

      We keep our ice cream maker out and use it often, at least once a week. I made the sorbet version using water. It was nice and chocolaty, but the men in the house said it needed more sugar (these are my chocoholics, lol). They also did not care for the cayenne in it so next time I would leave it out and add more sugar. Still, thanks for sharing the recipe. They did eat it up. :)
