An American twist on an Italian favorite, these ice cream balls are a clever way to make ho-hum chocolate and vanilla ice cream with maraschino cherries something truly extraordinary.

I cheated and used different flavored ice cream than called for but they were still great! A little messy, but like my kids cared! LOL
