We ran across some fresh cherries and decided to try making some kind of dessert with them.
This sauce was so fun to try and make and turned out so good.
2 cups pitted cherries
1.5 ounce maple syrup
2 tablespoons vanilla rum
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon corn starch
Put cherries, cocoa powder, maple syrup and 1/2 of the vanilla rum in a sauce pan.
Stir well and simmer until the cherries soften to desired consistency.
In a separate bowl, mix the remaining rum and cornstarch to make a slurry.
Add slurry to the sauce and heat until thickened.
