Melon Kiss
Melon
Dessert Wine

 

This is one of the fastest and easiest dessert recipes around which will still make you look like a culinary genius. Just 5 minutes of prep time!

The Basic Recipe:
1. Cut a melon in half
2. Scoop out the seeds
3. Fill the melon “bowl” with a white dessert wine
4. Serve with a spoon!

What sweet wine should you use? I would recommend an Austrian Beerenauslese or Eiswein (Ice Wine). You want to use something of quality, but there’s no need to spend a fortune on the dessert wine.

Here are a few more tips to make this recipe even better, or a bit fancier:

-Use a very ripe cantaloupe as the melon

-Chill the melon in the refrigerator for a few hours or more before making the dessert & serving

-Use a melon baller, and then put the perfectly shaped melon balls back into the cantaloupe shell and pour the dessert wine over.

-For smaller portions: cut the melon halves down into smaller “bowls”. Cut the extra melon into small pieces and place those into the bowl. This method also uses less dessert wine per serving.

-Use a melon-baller, and then put the melon balls into a fancy dish and serve that way.

-Another melon-baller idea: freeze the melon balls and then put them in either the rustic melon bowl or other serving dish.

-Serve your Melon KISS with some good vanilla ice cream on the side.

Enjoy!
