My husband and I created this recipe a few years ago from a basic ice cream recipe, after experimenting we perfected it. Make this when cherries are in season, and prepare the cherries ahead of time. Buy your favorite high quality dark chocolate to chop for the chips. Kirsch is a cherry flavored brandy, if you cant find it you can use water or another flavored alchoholic beverage that may compliment the taste of the cherries, but the kirsch really takes it over the top. Enjoy!!!
