Jamocha Chocolate Sorbet

Jamocha Chocolate Sorbet


Ingredients

Sorbet:
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1/2 cup unsweetened nonalkalized cocoa powder
1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
2 cups water
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons dark rum (optional)

Garnish:
Dark chocolate espresso beans
Grated bittersweet chocolate


Preparation

1. Make sorbet: In a medium bowl, combine chocolate, cocoa and espresso powder and whisk to blend. In a medium saucepan, combine water and sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Bring syrup to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Pour sugar syrup over chocolate mixture. Let mixture stand for 30 seconds. Gently whisk until smooth. Let cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Whisk in rum, if desired. Cover base and refrigerate until well chilled, 2-3 hours.

2. Whisk chilled sorbet base until smooth. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Pack sorbet into a 1-quart container and freeze for 2-3 hours or overnight.

3. Serve sorbet: Place 2 or 3 scoops of chocolate sorbet in each of 6 martini glasses. Garnish each serving with a few chocolate-covered coffee beans and a sprinkling of grated chocolate. Serve immediately.

I would like to take a moment of your time to tell you what an amazing employee I have found Ann  to be. She was so helpful to me during all facets of the gift ordering process. I have never dealt with your company before and it was with fear and trepidation that I emailed for help. I need'nt have worried because Ann was there. She took care of everything and made my holiday giving a pleasure. I have since ordered chocolates for family members and Ann was right there to be of assistance. Because of her I have made you guys my chocolatier of choice and record. You have a star here!  - Meg from Ontario, CA
