I love spumoni and was intrigued by this recipe so bought the ingredients to make it. I guess this one isn't to my tastes. I made it by whipping the cream and condensed milk with the rum extract and putting that in my ice cream machine. When it was almost done I added the cherry pie filling and mini chocolate chips. I omitted the nuts but would have used pistachio if I had them. I didn't like it soft but it was better when frozen harder with chocolate syrup. What I didn't like about it was that you couldn't taste the rum extract and could taste the condensed milk.

This is so good it's sinful! Definitely deserves more than 5 stars! My choice of nuts: pistachios, of course. I topped it with a little "bailey's Hot Fudge Sauce". I'm diabetic and I always say "If I'm going to cheat, it has to be a stupendous dessert." Well, here it is! I only had a small serving, but savored every bite. Made for 1st Annual Holiday Tag Game. Thanks for posting a winner Lauralie.

Oh my gosh this was soooo good. I had to chuckle my gf asked if she could take some of my ice cream jello and my spumoni home. I used a glass 9 x 13 pan and everyone and I mean everyone loved it. If I could give it more than 5 stars I sure would because it tasted that good.. I let it set out for like 15 minutes before we ate and oh man this was yummy capital Y :) I would recommend this to everyone and thanks lauralie41 for a hit that will be used again and again and will now be part of our holiday tradition. 5stars all the way..

mmmmmmm! This is very good! I could hardly wait till it was frozen. I think I dipped in it at every commercial until it was ready. I did use a 9x13 glass baking dish when I made this. I may add chopped maraschino cherries to it next time and a few less chocolate chips. Just for personal taste. A definite keeper!

OMG!!! I totally expected this to be good, because of the ingredients and ease of preparation....But I had NO CLUE that this was one of those "Gosh, I wish I knew how to make that!" recipes....Lauralie41....I cannot even begin to describe the "oohs and awwws" that my kids gave me (and I was giving myself) with this recipe!!! Here's how I explain it....Our favorite ice cream in the world is "Homemade Brand Cordial Cherry" ice cream, and it usually marks a special event in our lives when we can afford it! But THIS recipe is IT!!!!! If I didn't know you, personally, I would post this recipe as "Homemade Brand Cherry Cordial Ice Cream -- Copycat!" Yes, I would!!! Absolutely WONDERFUL!!!! To me, as a single Mom trying to take care of 4 kids, I don't have many opportunities to give them "REAL" treats...But this time, you told me HOW to do it, and HOW to give them their favorite of all-time!!! I sure wish I could give you 10 or 20 stars for this!! Thanks for sharing, Sweetie!!! THIS IS A KEEPER IN MY HOUSE AND ALWAYS WILL BE!!!! (You all just HAVE to try this.....:)) Thanks again!!! So much!!! :)
