Amarena Eisbecher W/Amarenakirschen - Cherry Sundaes-Adults Only

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by momaphet

This Cherry Sundae is traditional treat that is served in German ice cream parlors during the summer. The recipe makes enough for 2-4 ice cream sundaes; 2 as a stand alone treat or 4 as dessert. You could take out all the alcohol so the kids could have one too, but what fun would that be?!

I only rate this 4 stars because I found the kirsh to be slightly overpowering. I made this as a special treat for the BF. I would add the kirsh with the cherries a minute before turning off the heat. I used a little vanilla bean infused sugar. My BF went back for seconds and tried it with chocolate Ice cream and said it worked. Very good. Made for ZWt 6.
