This is a light version of Cherries Jubilee. I used Splenda brown sugar and only used 1 tbsp ..If you want you can use ice cream instead of the frozen yogurt. This is from a Quick and Simple magazine. Enjoy

HOLY DOOLEY this is incrediably easy and absolutely divine. I used a 30 ounce bottled of sour cherries so doubled all the other ingredients . I did have to add a bit more cornstartch slurry. I also added a splash of Grand Marnier. Served over vanilla ice cream. Definite keeper. Made for the Aus/NZ region for ZWT5 made for team Zaar Chow Hounds
