From Family Fun. It looks like a big slice of watermelon! I will try once we get the ingredients. Who knows, maybe it will make me a lover of honeydew! They don't give amounts for the sorbet, so I'm guessing on that.


  1. Halve the honeydew, discard the seeds, and chill it overnight in the fridge.
  2. The next day, put the halves in the freezer for 15 minutes, pull them out, and pack them with sorbet, gently evening off the top.
  3. Using a chilled knife, slice each half into halves again (make sure the melon is sorbet side up).
  4. Finally, insert a row of chocolate chip seeds and serve immediately.

This was a great and easy recipe, especially when your kids help! I bought two melons, a honey dew and a musk melon. Both tasted great with the raspberry sorbet. In fact, we tried strawberry and that was great as well. If you're on a diet, use diet sorbet for a low calorie, but healthy treat.

Okay, WI this was beyond delicious ~ and so fun to make, I pulled out "dew" from the garden yesterday, carried it carefully in, (have been known to drop them and have them rolling down hills) and followed this exactly. I used mini chocolate chips which are just way to cute. The taste is what can I say, so divine, so delicate, I could easily have eaten two pieces. What a fun treat to make with children, too. Had no trouble at all with any of it, and sliced very carefully. I did also chill the knife so it would make a clean slice. Terrific! This was great, and I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks, WI~!
