For as long as I can remember I’ve always been a huge fan of sherbet. But what I didn’t know until a few years ago, is that there is only one r in there. I grew up saying sher-bert, not sher-bet. And of course that’s still how I pronounce it. Call me confused. Another word that either boatloads of people mispronounce or that clearly should be spelled very different. Do you call it sher-bert or sher-bet? I’m curious if it’s a regional thing or what?!

Next to orange sherbet and lime, my favorite is watermelon. That is of course thanks to Friendly’s Wattamelon roll… and yes, it’s spelled that way. Such a fun seasonal treat! Watermelon sherbet with chocolate chips, wrapped in a lime sherbet, acting as the rind. It’s an absolute must and you always know it’s almost Summer when it finally hits store shelves!

While this may not be a full blown wattamelon roll creation (maybe someday I’ll attempt it), I’ve been eager to make a homemade watermelon sherbet for quite some time. Of course chocolate chip “seeds” were necessary. Chocolate and watermelon go together remarkably well. But that really shouldn’t be a huge surprise, chocolate goes great with almost anything.

This homemade watermelon sherbet is a fun way to enjoy your favorite Summer fruit in a new way! Sweet watermelon sherbet, studded with mini chocolate chip “seeds”. A perfect refreshing treat for hot Summer days! Be sure to add this to your Summer recipe plans!
