Watermelon Bombe Molded Sherbet Recipe

Sunday, July 15, 2012
Such a fun dessert to make and serve... everyone will love how refreshing and easy this is to assemble. You will want to make it again and again for all your party and picnic outings!

I love food art!

Make sure you have a dome shaped bottom glass or ceramic bowl that will freeze well.
You don't want a flat one as the dome looks much prettier unmolded.
I always make two out of this recipe, so I take one wherever we go and leave on home!
This is such a pretty idea and treat for any party. It's so easy, I have to wonder why I never tried this before. I had seen it in many photo's through the years made all different ways. It took me maybe 15 minutes to assemble.

Here's all you have to do: (note you can use sherbet or ice cream of choice just choose your favorite flavor by colors)

lime sherbet or pistachio ice cream 1/2 gallon size
raspberry sherbet or strawberry ice cream(even cherry will work) 1/2 gallon size
lemon sherbet or coconut ice cream or vanilla ice cream 1/2 gallon size
1 bag of miniature chocolate chips
1 medium size bowls ( this will make two)
1 package of saran wrap

Line the bowl with plastic wrap, leaving the sides long on all sides to fold up when you're going to store this.
I put each the sherbet in the microwave for around 35 seconds as I am using it, keep frozen until ready for each color. Starting with lime. Line the bowl with lime sherbet around 1 inch thickness all around the inside of the bowl.
Place in the freezer.
Mix the white color your using, that's the second layer. Place back in freezer.
Last layer is the red.
Put the raspberry sherbet in the microwave for 35 seconds. Mix the sherbet with 1 cup or more if you like, of the miniature chocolate chips (those will look like the watermelon seeds.)  Take the bowl out of the freezer and add to the middle all the raspberry chip sherbet. Fold up the saran wrap after smoothing out the top with a spatula and cover. Place back in freezer until firm. Unmold, taking off the plastic and flip out onto a platter and slice in wedges.
When you slice this in wedges it will look like watermelon slices.  Such a fun dessert to serve!  Enjoy!
