A bombé is a frozen dessert made up of layers of ice cream or sorbet, and a custard center. This delicious version mixes the sweet flavor of the outside layer with the nutty inside layer—the results are mouth-watering!
- 1/2 cup hazelnuts , chopped coarse
- 3 cups raspberry or orange sorbet or sherbet
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup Frangelico Liqueur
- 1 tablespoon orange zest , grated
Soften sorbet for about 15 to 20 minutes. Chill a 6-cup stainless steel bowl in freezer. (This is usually the smallest one in a set, about 6 inches in circumference and 4 inches high).
Evenly pack sorbet into the bottom and up the sides of the mold. If it starts to slide when you're trying to pack, freeze for a few minutes and continue. When it's completed place in the freezer.
Whip cream with honey and Frangelico until soft peaks form. Stir in orange zest and hazelnuts. Spoon into sorbet-lined bowl. Level to surface and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze 8 hours or overnight.
To serve, run a thin knife along the sides of the bowl to loosen. Dip the bowl to the top but not submerging into hot water for 20–30 seconds. Invert onto a serving plate. Serve in wedges.
