    My Private Note


    Serves: 8-12


    Cherry ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
    • 1 box dark chocolate-covered cherries
    • 2 bottles Magic Shell ice cream topping, any flavor (I use the darkest chocolate they have)
    • whipped cream


    1. 1
      Use a medium to large round ice cream scooper and scoop up some ice cream.
    2. 2
      Carefully push a chocolate covered cherry into the center of the scoop until the cherry is even with the edge of the scoop and level off the ice cream.
    3. 3
      You don't want the cherry to hit the top of the scooper, try to center it.
    4. 4
      Release onto a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze until very hard.
    5. 5
      Repeat for each chocolate covered cherry.
    6. 6
      Before serving, cover each'bomb' with Magic Shell.
    7. 7
      When the shell is hard put onto a dessert plate and garnish with some whipped cream.
    8. 8
      People are always amazed when they cut this open and find a chocolate covered cherry inside.
    9. 9
      The cherry won't freeze!

      Very interesting and simple recipe I would have never thought of. The kid's and adults loved it. Looked like something from an expensive restaurant.

      This was wonderful! I also tried it with a coffee ice cream and chocolate truffles inside. That was good too. I'm going to play with different combinations.
