You can use any kind of ice cream or sorbet that you want. I liked using sorbet. The flavor combo was yummy!
Now on to the best part of this post... are you ready... man it was hot today, wasn't it... ok just kidding. On to our giveaway! This one comes to you from a friend of mine who is a cupcake GENIUS! I finally got to try her delights and they are fabulous!!! Not only do they taste amazing, but they look amazing! Her company is called Tapaita's Gourmet Delights. Her website is under construction so this was a link to her Facebook page. You have simply got to check this girl out!
For our giveaway, she will be giving you a dozen of her mini cupcakes.
The clincher for this giveaway, is that you have to be local to the east valley. You will need to arrange to pick them up, as they won't ship very easy.
Here's how to enter: You will receive an entry for each of the following.
1: "like" my FB page
2: refer a friend who "likes" my FB page.

Now on to our recipe for the day...
1 Pint lime sherbet
1 Pint Pineapple sherbet (I only used about half of this one)
1 Pint raspberry sherbet
¼ C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Line 1 ½ Qt. bowl with piece of aluminum foil, 15/12 inches. Soften lime sherbet slightly, press sherbet evenly against bottom and side of foil lined bowl. Freeze uncovered until firm, about 1 hour.
Soften pineapple sherbet slightly and spread evenly over lime sherbet. Freeze uncovered about 30 minutes. (lime and pineapple sherbet layers should be thin.)
Soften raspberry sherbet slightly and pack in center of sherbet-lined bowl. Smooth top to resemble cut watermelon. Cover and freeze until firm, about 8 hours.
Just before serving, uncover sherbet. Place serving plate on bowl and invert. Remove bowl and peel off aluminum foil. Cut bomb into wedges and press a few chocolate chips into raspberry section of each slice for watermelon seeds.
