Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup vanilla or white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 teaspoon shortening
  • 10 to 12 small lemon leaves
  • 3 pints raspberry sherbet or sorbet
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries

Directions

In a microwave or heavy saucepan, melt chips and shortening; stir until smooth. With a small new paint brush, brush white chocolate in a thin layer on the underside of each leaf (see photo 1). Refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes. Apply a second layer of white chocolate; chill for at least 15 minutes or overnight. Gently peel leaf from chocolate (see photo 2).
For wreath, chill a 14-in. to 16-in. round serving platter in the freezer for at least 15 minutes. Working quickly, scoop 1-1/2-in. balls of sherbet and arrange in a ring on the platter. Make another ring of sherbet scoops inside the first ring. Arrange a third ring on top of the other rings. If sherbet begins to melt, return platter to the freezer for 5 minutes. Garnish with white chocolate leaves and raspberries. Yield: 10-12 servings.
