You cant deny that cherry, with its fruit and nut flavour, is a natural partner for Chocolate.

Assembling the Pudding! Its Super Easy..

  1. Chocolate Cake Crumbs / Chocolate Cookie Crumbs – For this recipe I used leftover chocolate cake crumbs. You can also use any chocolate cookies crushed. They’ll give a delicious crunch to the pudding.
  2. Cherry Compote / Cherry Preserve – Top the crumbs with Homemade cherry preserve or bottled, tasted great with both.
  3. Halved Cherries on the sides
  4. Chocolate Pudding – Once the chocolate pudding is chilled, add a teaspoon of brandy.
  5. More crumbs and preserve
  6. Cherry on top πŸ™‚
