This sorbet is literally the best way to cure a case of the Mondays. If you are looking for something rich tasting without the guilt this will be your jam! Its bold taste is certainly an ideal way to curb even the most intense chocolate craving. I have to admit sorbet and granita have been on my mind for a while. Though they usually take a side seat to ice cream or some other enticing recipe, I am so glad I decided to make it. It literally took 10 minutes using ingredients I already had on hand. Disclaimer, if you make this in the morning like I did, it will leave you craving chocolate for the rest of the day. Which is a good thing….because you made this!
- In a saucepan, add half the water, sugar, salt, and cocoa powder and whisk together. Warm over medium heat. Bring to a full boil while whisking. Then reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 seconds.
- Remove from the heat and add vanilla and espresso. Add in remaining water and stir.
- Transfer the mixture into a bowl and refrigerate until cool, at least one hour. Once ready, just add to your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions
