Ingredients
  • 450 g (14 1/2 oz) cherries, halved and pitted
  • 4 tablespoons kirsch or cherry syrup
  • 500 g (1 lb) tub vanilla ice cream
  • 2 double chocolate muffins, roughly chopped

  • 300 ml (1/2 pint) whipping cream
  • 4 cherries on their stems
  • a little grated chocolate
Directions
  • Place a few of the cherries in the bottom of 4 tall sundae glasses and spoon 1 tablespoon of the kirsch or cherry syrup into each glass. Add 2 small scoops of vanilla ice cream to each glass. Divide half the muffin pieces between the glasses and spoon 1 tablespoon chocolate sauce over each.
  • Repeat with another layer of cherries, ice cream, muffins and chocolate sauce, finishing with an extra layer of cherries.
  • Lightly whip the cream in a bowl with a hand-held electric whisk until soft peaks form and spoon over the sundaes. Decorate with the cherries on their stalks and a little grated chocolate. Serve immediately with long spoons.
