- The sweet cherries originated in Asia Minor.

While preparing the ice cream, be sure to let the ice cream soften in the refrigerator for an hour. We recommend setting a timer. You surely don’t want to let it melt completely. This helps the Cherry Jam and cherry brandy mix easily into the ice cream. The cherry chocolate ice cream is rich in flavor without being too heavy. There's a beautiful balance that these summertime cherry flavors bring to a regular creamy chocolate ice cream. The good thing about having stocked up on Cherry Jam is that you won’t have to be stuck waiting for cherry season to come around again.
So, what are you waiting for? Doesn't this sound appetizing to make you want to embrace your sweet tooth? Get started on this little treat now. The month of July is National Ice Cream month, and National Ice Cream Day falls in July as well. So what better reason do you need to celebrate the love of chocolate and cherries! And don't worry, with ice cream, calories don't count. Everyone deserves to have their favorite treat every now and then!
