  • In a saucepan, stir together the cherry pie filling and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. When it begins to boil, pour the brandy over the top and do not mix. Carefully touch a lit match to the side of the pan to light a flame. Allow the flame to burn out, then mix the brandy into the cherries. Serve hot over scoops of vanilla ice cream.

It was really good but for some reason I was disappointed by the flames. They weren't as spectacular as I thought they'd be. Read More

I'll give this recipe 5 stars for how easy it is to make. This is a delicious topping for vanilla ice cream. I used Splenda brown sugar to keep the sugar down and served it as dessert after a romantic Valentines day dinner. Read More

For a little more spectacular flame heat your Brandy up. The brandy has to be heated above 79 degrees F to reach its flashpoint (the point where it starts producing enough vapors to ignite). Once the brandy is heated then pour light and then stir into Cherries. This recipe is also wonderful if you substitute the brown sugar for white sugar and the cherry pie filling with fresh picked huckleberries cooked to a simple syrup. Have fun and flame on!:) Read More

used frozen dark cherries instead of pie filling and a pat of butter was amazing and delicious and simple my family loved it. I would make again for sure. Read More
