Ingredients

  • 400g cherries, pitted
  • 3 tbsp brandy
  • 50g hazelnuts
  • 100g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tbsp double cream
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 x 260g pack double chocolate brownie bites
  • 1 x 500g tub vanilla ice cream
  • 50g white chocolate chips

Step by step

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Halve the pitted cherries, place in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of the brandy and leave to macerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Toast the hazelnuts in the oven for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Leave to cool, then roughly chop
  3. For the chocolate sauce, place the dark chocolate, double cream, golden syrup, remaining tablespoon of brandy and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan. Stir over a low heat just until melted and smooth, then allow to cool to room temperature. Roughly break up the brownie bites into chunky pieces.
  4. To assemble, take 4 glass tumblers or jam jars and layer up the brownie bites, scoops of ice cream, macerated cherries, chocolate sauce, hazelnuts and white chocolate chips. Finish with a final scattering of hazelnuts and white chocolate chips.
    Tip
    To pit cherries without a pitter, put them in a plastic food bag; use a rolling pin to lightly crush them open, then pop out the stones.
