    Bergy's Note:

    For best effect use a chafing dish and flambe at the table. Otherwise be quick from the stove to the table (don't trip) dim the lights and voila, ooohs and ahhs from everyone. Very luscious dessert and wonderful with the cold ice cream and the hot sauce. Romantic too!

      I'm a chocolate fiend, but this dessert had me licking my plate! The Kahlua adds an incredible depth to the fresh fruit flavor. The flamming rum adds drama and a bit of spice. Thanks Bergy, this is a treasure.

      Didn't flambe as I didn't have any rum, but oh my this was soooo good! I've never made anything like this before, and it was absolutely heavenly. Thank you thank you thank you! I used Kelly's Cornish honeycomb ice cream, too, which made it even more delicious. Definitely making this again.
