How to Make It

Step 1

Combine cherries in a heavy non-aluminum 3-qt. saucepan; reserve 6 Tbsp. syrup. Stir together cornstarch and reserved syrup.

Step 2

Stir together sugar and allspice; add to cherries, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low; add cornstarch mixture, and cook, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture is thickened and slightly clear. Remove from heat. Stir in raspberry liqueur and brandy; return to heat, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 1 minute.

Step 3

Place 1 Tbsp. chocolate liqueur in each of 6 (6-oz.) serving dishes, and top with ice cream. Pour cherry mixture over ice cream in each dish, and serve with chocolate wafers.

Step 4

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur, Godiva Original Chocolate Liqueur, and Pepperidge Farm Chocolate Fudge Crème-Filled Pirouette Rolled Wafers.

This recipe is GREAT! It is fast, easy and tastes like a million bucks. I've given it to all my friends and use it each time I have someone new to dinner. I cut down on the amount of sugar and allspice just a tad as I wanted to taste the cherries and liqueurs. Also used a choice of vanilla and/or chocolate ice creams!
