A simple chocolate sorbet to make at home, with only 3 ingredients and without an ice cream maker. All you need to make this rich chocolate sorbet is water, sugar and cocoa powder. I was surprised at how delicious this easy chocolate sorbet was. It is a little hard when it is frozen so you will need to remove it a few minutes before serving and melts a little quicker than ice cream, but you will be amazed at how good this tastes.
Takes to make the mixture and boil = 10 minutes
Chill time and whisking = 4 hours + overnight.
Makes = Serves about 6 people depending on how many scoops are desired.
- Cocoa powder – 125g (1 cup)
- Water – 500ml (2 cups)
- White Sugar or Caster Sugar – 250g (1 cup)
SIFT the cocoa powder int a small saucepan and gently heat all ingredients until bubbly and the sugar is dissolved. Then pour the mixture into a metal loaf tin. I use my small bread tin 900g (1 lb). Cool on bench for at least 20 minutes then chill 2 hours in the fridge covered with plastic.
REMOVE and whisk with electric beaters. Freeze, 30 minutes, remove and whisk, Freeze 30 minutes, remove and whisk. Freeze overnight and enjoy the next day.

- Other recipes and websites recommend adding 1-2 tbsp of alcohol to your ice cream to make it softer and more scoop-able. Add liqueur or vodka during the first whisk as this enables you to scoop it out once frozen, but I never add this.
