“I don't know where this recipe came from but my friends go nuts trying to figure out how I made it! My Scrabble buddy can eat four of them! Everyone loves this dessert!”
8-12 Cherry Bombs

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 gallon vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
  • 1 box dark chocolate-covered cherries
  • 2 bottles Magic Shell ice cream topping, any flavor (I use the darkest chocolate they have)
  • whipped cream


  1. Use a medium to large round ice cream scooper and scoop up some ice cream.
  2. Carefully push a chocolate covered cherry into the center of the scoop until the cherry is even with the edge of the scoop and level off the ice cream.
  3. You don't want the cherry to hit the top of the scooper, try to center it.
  4. Release onto a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze until very hard.
  5. Repeat for each chocolate covered cherry.
  6. Before serving, cover each'bomb' with Magic Shell.
  7. When the shell is hard put onto a dessert plate and garnish with some whipped cream.
  8. People are always amazed when they cut this open and find a chocolate covered cherry inside.
  9. The cherry won't freeze!
