This is a delicious dessert - I usually make it with fresh cherries, but canned work just as well. You might want to adjust the sugar amount though, as canned cherries are often sweeter.

This was really good and made in just a few mins! I only used one and a half cups of cherries and they were frozen cherries cut into fours. I also used Stevia instead of sugar. And then I drizzled just a tiny bit of chocolate syrup on top. Wow! Really good. Thank you for sharing :) Read More
