Killer Chocolate Sorbet

This is a recipe that I got from my dad who swears this chocolate sorbet will knock your socks off. It is incredibly chocolatey and absolutely delicious. It is important to use high quality chocolate in this recipe, as all you taste is chocolate... since there is no milk or cream to dilute the flavor. Mmm, super rich, amazing, yummy.

2 1/4 cups water
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch of salt
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 tablespoon dark rum

In a saucepan whisk together 1 1/2 cups water with the sugar, cocoa powder, and the salt. Bring to a boil while whisking constantly. Remove from heat after 45 seconds of boiling. Stir in the chocolate until melted. Add the vanilla, remaining 3/4 cup water and rum. Stir together. Transfer mixture into a blender and blend for 15 seconds. Chill thoroughly in the fridge.

Once very cold, pour into your ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers instructions. Serve and enjoy!
