If you haven’t got round to thinking of a suitably romantic dessert for tonight try this simple idea: buy a few gorgeous dark handmade chocolates and truffles and serve them with a frozen shot of cherry brandy. (Don’t worry, it won’t actually freeze, simply turn lusciously cold and syrupy.)
My favourite brand is the Danish Cherry Heering, also known as Heering, which was once marketed under the memorable slogan ‘Cherry Heering, very cheering!’ But you could use any cherry brandy or liqueur
You could equally well serve it with a dark chocolate mousse or chocolate pot - with a spoonful of cherry compote or other red berry fruits if you like.
