Ice cream bombe

Hello,
This is my first post on this site.
I need help in finding a receipe for an ice cream bombe receipe that was called Christopher's Surprise it was a lemon flavoured ice cream with chocolate pieces inside. Hence the surprise when you cut it open the chocolate would tumble out.
I have lost the receipe and would love to find it again.
Any help received is very appreciated.

I've seen various bombes and have even eaten from the same. Cristopher's Bombe refers to a desert bombe that was served to James Bond with a real bomb in it (in the move).

I looked in Google, and Yahoo, but with few results. Most posts refer to the film, or to another one about a code breaking machine. But this post - Elaine's recipes: Bombe Surprise Will give you a light bombe.

I would make this recipe, and a shallow lemon cake, or shortbread to act as a base. Then, make the bombe from the recipe, and scoop out much of the center so as to make it hollow. Put the chocolate into the bowl you just carved, and place the cake or shortbread over the opening to create the final structure. Invert onto a serving plate and cover with a chocolate ganache.

That should get you close. For the cake, or shortbread, add lemon flavoring.

Seeeeeeya- Chief Longwind of the North

I know you're looking for a lemon ice cream bombe, but here's one I really like:
