Expert Tips

  • Frozen cherries, partially thawed, can be used for the fresh cherries.
  • The name of this dish stems from the same flavors found in an exquisite chocolate-cherry torte, which was embellished with cherry liqueur (Kirsch) and whipped cream, that originated in Germany's Black Forest region.
