Ice Cream Bomb Recipe (EID SPECIAL)

Yield: 1 1/2 quarts; 6 servings


  1. 2 pints Mango Sorbet, recipe follows
  2. 1 1/2 pints good raspberry sorbet, softened
  3. 1 pint good strawberry ice cream, softened


  • Freeze an 8-inch bowl. When it’s cold, place the mango sorbet in the bowl and press it against the sides of the bowl.
  • If you have a 6 1/2-inch bowl the same shape as the 8-inch bowl (such as from a set of nesting bowls), cover it with plastic wrap and press it into the sorbet to make the layer even.
  • Freeze the sorbet for 30 minutes or until firm.
  • Remove the 6 1/2-inch bowl.
  • Spread an even layer of softened raspberry sorbet on top of the mango sorbet (a 4 1/2-inch nesting bowl wrapped in plastic wrap helps with this) and freeze for another 30 minutes or until firm.
  • Remove the 4 1/2 inch bowl.
  • Finally, spoon in enough softened strawberry ice cream to fill the bowl.
  • Freeze until hard.
  • To unmold, dip the bowl up to the rim in warm water.
  • Run a knife around the edge to loosen the bombe and unmold upside down onto a flat plate.
  • You may need to run a flexible metal spatula along the edge of the bombe to release it.
  • Freeze until ready to serve.
  • Serve in wedges.
