I love my Kitchen Aid Mixer and I especially love my Kitchen Aid Ice Cream Maker Attachment. I also love Perfect Scoop. My love is well known, so my mother passed along an invitation to my aunt’s for the 4th and asked me to make some home-made ice cream.
Being a rebel, I decided to make chocolate sherbet. David Lebovitz writes about sherbet vs ice cream and how to figure whether a something is one or the other but he’s my cold dessert guru so I would agree no matter what. Just so long as he keeps the recipes coming.
I mixed together half of the milk, cocoa, sugar, and pinch of salt and heated them.
I removed the mixture from the heat while I chopped the chocolate.
I added the chocolate and the rest of the milk with a little vanilla. I let the mix sit in the fridge to cool and then made it in the ice maker.
I told Pat he needed to try the sherbet so I could quote him on the blog. He laughed, tried it, and said he liked it. The next day he e-mailed me and told me this was his quote:
“It was suprisingly rich for being a sherbert. The flavor was amazingly good and it was way better for you then chocolate ice cream!”
