I am always looking for new frozen desserts. It’s summer and it’s hot! Okay, we eat frozen goodness all year. Anyway, I was looking for a different one and found many for mocha java sorbet. There are four of us that drink morning coffee.
The younger ones are more coffee flavored milk. We like chocolate, too. Hmmm, something for us to definitely try! It turned out great! Except…seems there is an exception a lot these days, I didn’t have semi sweet chocolate squares and used milk chocolate chips instead. Very chocolaty and yummy but the coffee is an aftertaste. Use semi sweet if you are looking for more of a coffee taste or replace the water with coffee or both, which is what I will do next time. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Mocha Java Sorbet
- 1 – 1 /2 cups strong coffee, I used left over from the morning
- 1/2 cup water…I am going to skip the water next time and use all coffee
- 6 1 oz squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped up small
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips or 2 1 oz squares
- 2 cups granulated sugar
Put chopped chocolate in a bowl.
Heat coffee, water and sugar until sugar is dissolved.
Pour 1 cup hot liquid over chocolate and let sit 5 minutes.
Whisk until all chocolate is melted and smooth.
Add remaining liquid to chocolate.
Stir until smooth.
Pour into a freezer proof pan. I used a stainless steel 15 x 13 or 16 x 12 pan, it was big whatever size it was.
Let freeze until solid. It still took 4 to 5 hours for mine but the freezer was opened
Take out of freezer and break into chunks.
Put in food processor and pulse until smooth. I used a small chopper and did it in batches. You can also but in bowl and use a mixer, beating until smooth.
Eat soft serve if you cannot wait, like my boys. Or, put in freezer until completely frozen.
