    • 1 (1-lb) bag frozen pitted tart red cherries, thawed
    • 2⁄3 cup sugar
    • 1⁄4 cup light corn syrup
    • 6 milk chocolate–covered cherries with liquid centers (we used Cella’s)
    • Hard-shell chocolate ice cream topping (we used Magic Shell)
    • Garnish: fresh cherries or maraschino cherries with stems


    1. Purée tart red cherries in blender with sugar and corn syrup; refrigerate mixture until cold, about 1 hour.

    2. Pour cherry mixture into an ice cream maker; freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. Transfer sorbet to a freezer container; freeze 2 hours. Place a nonstick foil–lined baking sheet in freezer.

    3. Use an ice cream scoop with about 1⁄3 cup capacity (21⁄2-in.-diameter scoop) to make individual bombes. Scrape sorbet into ice cream scoop, filling completely. Make an indentation in center of sorbet and insert a chocolate-covered cherry candy into middle of scoop; cover cherry with more sorbet. Release scoop onto chilled baking sheet. Make five more bombes and freeze.

    4. To serve: Place bombes on serving plates. Squeeze hard-shell topping over bombes, letting it drip down sides. Immediately place a fresh or maraschino cherry on top of the chocolate coating before it hardens. Serve immediately with extra cherries, if desired.
