Quarantine Kitchen: Ice Cream Watermelon

Leslie Coff

Shopping List:

  • Two pints green ice cream/sorbet
  • Two pints pink ice cream/sorbet
  • ½ cup chocolate chips.
  • Glass or metal bowl (metal preferred) around 6-8” diameter
  • Serving plate

 

Recipe:

Allow the green ice cream to soften slightly, empty into the bowl and use a spoon or spatula to line the bowl with the ice cream, about ½” thick. This will be the “rind” of the watermelon.

Put bowl into freezer to harden the ‘rind’ of the ‘watermelon’.

Allow the pink ice cream to soften a bit, mix in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed.

Remove bowl from freezer. Add the softened pink ice cream mixed with chips...and fill ‘rind’ with pink filling.

Refreeze.

After it hardens, when ready to serve, fill a larger bowl with hot water. Dip the bottom of the ice cream watermelon bowl into the hot water momentarily.

Upturn onto a serving plate. Garnish with mint leaves or flowers or sprinkles.

Slice dome into ‘watermelon’ slices and serve immediately.
