Default Choc Mint Sundae

here's one I'd like to try (my favorite ice cream flavor is choclate chip mint).
from The Daily News:

Excerpted from “Sundaes & Splits,” by Hannah Miles. Published by Ryland Peters & Small, $15.95.

Recipe: Mint Chocolate Chip Sundae
Serves: 4
Prep Time: 30


Mint Sorbet:

1¼ cups granulated sugar
Freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon
A handful of fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
1 teaspoon green food coloring

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream:

1 quantity Vanilla Ice Cream Base (see recipe, below)
1 teaspoon mint extract
4 ounces mint-chocolate flavored candy sticks, finely chopped
1 teaspoon green food coloring

Mint Choc Sauce:

6 ounces peppermint fondant-filled chocolate squares (such as After Eights)
1 cup heavy cream

To Finish:

4 mint-chocolate flavored candy sticks

1. To make the Mint Sorbet, put the sugar, lemon juice, fresh mint and green food coloring in a saucepan with 2¹/³ cups water. Simmer for 10 minutes until the sugar has dissolved and you have a thin mint syrup. Force through a fine mesh strainer to remove the mint and leave to cool. When completely cool, churn in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Freeze until needed.

2. To make Mint Choc Chip Ice Cream, add the mint extract, chopped mint-chocolate candy and 1 teaspoon green food coloring to vanilla ice cream base and churn in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Freeze until needed.

3. To make the Mint Choc Sauce, place peppermint squares and heavy cream in a saucepan; set over gentle heat. Stir until the mints have melted and sauce is thick and glossy. Leave to cool completely.

4. To assemble, layer the Chocolate Mint Sauce, Mint Choc Chip Ice Cream and Mint Sorbet in the sundae dishes. Decorate each sundae with a mint-chocolate flavored candy stick. Serve immediately.

Finding a healthy dessert that also actually tastes good can be quite challenging. I have find that many diet desserts are quite flavorless and not satisfying. When I found Smart Ones Mint Chocolate Chip Sundae, it just looked too good to resist.

Great recipe.
