Ultimate Chocolate Sorbet
 
Makes 4 servings: 3 Weight Watchers POINTS per serving
Imagine!  Chocolate that tastes great - and is on the Weight Watchers Diet!

 
Ingredients:

1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp instant espresso or coffee powder
1/2 oz (1/2 square) unsweetened chocolate, chopped

Instructions:

In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, cocoa, honey, espresso powder, chocolate and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a simmer and cook until the sugar is dissolved, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 1/2 cups water.

Transfer to a 13 x 9 inch (33 x 23 cm) baking pan. Freeze until just frozen, 2-3 hours.

Transfer to a food processor and puree.

Scrape into a quart-size (1 liter capacity) airtight container and freeze until firm. If the sorbet loses its velvety texture, re-process right before serving.

TIP:  To make the sorbet without a food processor: Freeze the sorbet in a gallon-size sealable plastic bag. Open the bag slightly after 2 to 3 hours to let the air escape. Then squish the bag to break up any lumps.
