These sound very yummy indeed! I originally found this recipe in the UK cooking magazine Olive.

What a treat! It's decadent yet healthy. Dark chocolate is good for you and I loved the fact that there was no added sugar. The small serving is perfect since the taste is rich. This is a delicious, easy and very pretty dessert. ~Made for ZWT6 Zee Zany Zesty Cookz~ Danke!

WOW! This is awesome and can't wait to make it for guests - needing to replenish my Kirsch and chocolate. My jar of stemmed cherries is stashed away for next time around. This is just so good and makes for great presentation - yes can't wait to serve it to family and friends.
