Sunrise Sherbet Bombe

13 Oct

Note from Sheri: You know me! I’ll be using sugar free sorbets or sherbets! Gosh, I hope I can find sugar free chocolate wafers. This is INCREDIBLY easy and a must for a quick little something if you’re having ppl over.

You will never believe how easy it is to make such a stunning specimen.

This is what I did.

Placed my sherbet on the counter so that it could soften a bit.

I decided to use orange, strawberry and raspberry sherbet to match the stunning sunrise. You can use anything you wish, including ice cream or sorbet, in any combination.

Grab a box of chocolate wafers,

And give them a good pulse in a food processor. If you don’t happen to have a have a food processor, no worries, just put the cookies in a sealed plastic baggie, grab a heavy spoon & smash away.

Melt a stick and a half of butter and mix with smashed cookies until it forms a soft chocolatey mixture. Line a glass bowl with plastic wrap (allowing enough extra hanging over sides to cover the top before freezing) and with your fingers press the cookie/butter mixture onto the plastic wrap that is lining the sides of the bowl. This will become the outer crust.

Then begin spooning the softened sherbet into the cookie crust.

Add each additional flavor.

Smooth the last layer of sherbet and cover with the extra plastic wrap.

Pop the bowl into the freezer (on a flat surface) and let freeze for at least eight hours.

Once frozen, place a plate on top of bowl and gently turn over. (You may need to soak bowl in hot water for a few minutes to loosen.)

And “bada boom bada bing” …a bombe!

A stunning sweet sherbet sunrise to enjoy any day.

May all your days begin with splendor,


Sunrise Sherbet Bombe

Serves 8-10

What You’ll Need:

1- 9 ounce box of chocolate wafer cookies
1 1/2 sticks salted butter- melted
1 quart orange sherbet
1 quart strawberry sherbet
1 quart raspberry sherbet

What You’ll Do:

Place sherbet on counter to soften. Pulse cookies in a food processor (or pound with spoon in a sealed plastic baggie). Mix melted butter and ground cookies together until it becomes incorporated.  Grab a 3 quart glass container and line with plastic wrap (leave enough extra over the edge to cover top of bowl before freezing). With fingers, press cookie/butter mixture on top of the plastic wrap, around sides of bowl. Next spoon in softened sherbet. I used a little over 1/2 a quart of each flavor. Be careful not to overfill. Cover the top with extra plastic wrap. Place in freezer (on a flat surface) for at least 8 hours. Remove from freezer, place a plate on top of bowl, gently turn over to release bombay. You may need to soak bowl in hot water for a few minutes if bombaby seems stuck.

    Oooh! Gorgeous AND sugar-free! That looks amazing, and as someone who watches her sugar, I must try this for a dessert. In fact, I’ve got a dinner party coming up with a sugar and dairy intolerant guests – this will be it. And they can have the butter… Thank you!

      Were you able to find sugar free chocolate wafers? I am having a bit of trouble.

        I was thinking of using digestives instead, actually – do you think they’ll work? They are fairly low in sugar, and I could possibly shave or melt a bit of dark chocolate into them.

    Im not clear what you mean by “digestives”. Do you mean some type of chocolate cookie meant for aiding in digestion? If so, I don’t think I would use those. The serving size is carefully computed on those type things and can cause diarrhea and cramping if you go overboard. It is meant as a medicinal digestive aid and not as a regular snack cookie. If I’m way off, please tell me!
