Now here's a great idea for a FROZEN WATERMELON (not the
drink) that's even more refreshing than say a freshly
sliced watermelon. This is the ice cream concoction
that looks like a watermelon when it's all done...even
has mini chocolate chips for the seeds. This is one of
those things you'd see straight off the crafty magazine
pages but it IS easily possible to make. If you have room
in your freezer to chill this I challenge you to put it
together. You'll be thanking me later!

Heading out to an early 4th of July party this weekend?
You would be the star of the show if you showed up with
this (if there is a freezer to keep it in until ready
to serve ;o)

Also what a cool idea I came across for making frozen
melon balls to use as ice cubes?! Take a look at the
corner below for the scoop.

Enjoy!

RECIPE: FROZEN WATERMELON DESSERT TREAT

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

INGREDIENTS
3 pints vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
3 pints raspberry sherbet, softened
1/2 cup (3 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
14 drops green food color
2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed

DIRECTIONS:
Line an 8-cup mold or mixing bowl completely with aluminum
foil. Working quickly, spread the vanilla ice cream 1 inch
thick over the bottom and sides of the bowl. (It'll probably
slide down the sides a bit.) Immediately place in the freezer
and freeze for about 1 hour. When the ice cream has become
somewhat hard, but not frozen solid, spread it all the way
up the sides to the top of the bowl; then replace it in the
freezer for about 1 hour, until firm. Place the raspberry
sherbet in a medium-sized bowl and add the chocolate chips;
blend until evenly mixed. Place in the vanilla ice cream-
lined bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze overnight,
or until completely hard. When ready to serve, in a small
bowl, mix the green food color with the whipped topping until
evenly blended. Remove the mold from the freezer, remove the
plastic wrap, and invert onto a platter larger than the mold.
Remove the mold and peel off the foil. Spread the whipped
topping evenly over the ice cream and serve immediately, or
freeze until the topping is firm, then cover and keep frozen
until ready to serve. Cut into wedges, just like fresh
watermelon.

Yield: 10-12 Servings

FRUITY UP THOSE ICE CUBES

For a quick and easy way to give your drinks some fun
and flavor here's a great idea for MELON BALL ICE CUBES
using Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Honeydew melon or all
of the above.

- Rinse the melons, cut in half and remove the seeds.
- Scoop out the small melon balls from the fruit using
a melon baller tool.

- Arrange the melon balls on a small baking sheet or platter
lined with waxed paper so they are not touching.
- Freeze for a few hours, remove and transfer them to a
freezer bag.
- store in the freezer until ready to use.

Enjoy as refreshing ice cubes in your drink anytime!
