Black Forest Christmas Fool

1 min read
A simple, quick and indulgent dessert you can rustle up in 10 minutes. If you want to make a non- alcoholic version, use a can of cherries in syrup instead.

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes

Cooking Time: N/A

Serves: 6


  • 500ml double cream
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 250g Christmas cake
  • 390g black cherries in kirsch, drained
  • 50g dark chocolate chopped


  1. Whisk the cream with the vanilla and icing sugar until it just holds its shape. Crumble the cake into six glasses, then top with a few cherries, a dollop of cream and a drizzle of the kirsch. Scatter over the chopped chocolate.
