From Old Blog – Dark Chocolate Earl Grey Sorbet

This is for extreme chocolate lovers only. It is not very sweet, and is almost black! Since Earl Grey contains bergamot, try serving it with oranges. I copied this from a magazine a long time ago, but now i don’t remember which one it was, so sorry if i’m violating any copyright laws!

4 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
4 Earl Grey tea bags
1 cup unsweetened, Dutch-process cocoa powder (i used Hersheys special dark; it’s good)
1 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped

Boil water and sugar together. Add the tea. Remove from heat, cover, and steep 15 minutes. Remove teabags. Bring back to medium-high heat and slowly add cocoa, whisking until smooth. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate until melted. Strain into a bowl and place in fridge, covered, at least 2 hours. Follow directions on your ice cream maker. Click here if you don’t have an ice cream maker.
