  • Ready In

  1. Line a serving bowl with plastic wrap. Spoon lime sherbet into the bowl, smoothing it out to be 1/2 inch thick along the sides, making the watermelon rind. Place bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir the chocolate chips evenly into the raspberry sherbet. Scoop the raspberry sherbet into the lime sherbet shell, smoothing off and leveling the top. Return bowl to the freezer.
  3. To serve, invert the bowl onto a serving plate. Lift off bowl and remove plastic wrap. Freeze again for 1 hour if the sherbet is too soft. Slice pieces like a watermelon.


  • Editor's Note:
  • The sherbet "watermelon" should slide easily out of the plastic wrap-lined bowl. But if help is needed, invert the bowl onto a serving plate, wet a cotton towel with hot water, wring out the water, and briefly wrap the towel over the bowl to take the chill off. Remove the towel, lift off the bowl, and peel off the plastic wrap.

A very refreshing summer treat. The most important part of this recipe is making sure you line your bowl with plastic wrap before putting the sherbert in the bowl. Use sherbert that is soft, but...
