Easy Dark Cherries and Ice Cream

This is a summertime favorite at our house and so easy to prepare!

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 oz.) of pitted dark cherries
  • 1 and 1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • Ad
  • 2 Tbsp. of brandy if you have it on hand
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • vanilla ice cream or vanilla frozen yogurt

Directions

Drain the juice from 15 oz. can of dark pitted cherries into a small pan or skillet. Stir in the brown sugar and the cornstarch. Use a whisk to blend well. Bring this to a boil and add your cherries, stir to coat the cherries with mixture. Take your pan off the heat and add 2 Tbsp. of brandy. Brandy is optional. I have made it both ways. Return to heat and cook for a minute. Serve over any flavor of ice cream. I have served it over vanilla and chocolate chip ice cream, the added bits of chocolate are very good with the dark cherry sauce.
