"Creamy and cool, this dessert was well received at my book club. I used raspberry sorbet, drizzled a little chocolate syrup and served some shortbread cookies with it."

"I also found it strange that after saying it was excellent she only gave it one star.

As far as the difference between sorbet and sherbet, sorbet is just plain fruit that is blended and frozen. while sherbet is blended fruit that has sugar added. they are both great. and this recipe turned out great too"

"This was a hit in my house. The sorbet wasn't easy to find. Some say that sorbet and sherbet are the same which made it more confusing. Finally found the sorbet. It is a wonderful summer dessert."
