    I didn't have vanilla Ice Cream, so served this with some home made Dark Chocolate Pudding. Great combo. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to, but I covered the pan when cherries when they were cooking to soften them.

    Turned out quite nice! I would definitely recommend and darken the room when you light them. They glow with a blue flame!
