Honey-Basil Sorbet with Chocolate-covered Basil

This week has been all about basil in celebration of HerbDay this Saturday. The Daily Raw Blog has posted raw food recipes for a beverage, appetizer, soup, a main dish, so I guess that leaves....dessert!

This is a scrumptious sorbet and so very simple to make. The chocolate-covered basil leaf adds a bit of the "WOW" factor to this dessert.
