Sweet Heaven. This lovely recipe ended up being last nights dinner (no Vic, not all of it, lol, but I'll confess to thinking about it!). I used low fat cream cheese..can't get neuf around here. The chocolate, cheese and cherries are divine by any standard but with the low fat and sugar it's over the top perfect. Smooth, creamy, rich, delicious and *Delicious*. Total yumm and a 5 star winner gf.
