Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream with Cherry Sauce

I was wanting to make and share this chocolate ice cream with you guys because it's one of my favorites! I love it with fresh cherry sauce, a combination I find irresistible. And it deserves the word velvet; though cheesy, it's self-explanatory.

  • Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x



For the cherry sauce:

  • 1 pound (450g) fresh cherries, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons cassis liqueur (optional)
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons water


  1. Put cherries in a saucepan, add the sugar and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
  2. Add cassis and 1 or 2 Tbs water. If you're not using the liqueur, increase water by 2 tablespoons.
  3. Let cook for about 5 minutes, until cherries soften a bit and the sauce is syrupy.
  4. Keep refrigerated and use cold over ice cream.
