Black Forest Cherry Ice Cream Dessert

Black Forest Cherry Ice Cream Dessert


My original thought with this dessert was to make it into a “cake” like Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream Sandwich Cake or Candy Cane Fudge Ice Cream Sandwich Cake. But I wasn’t sure the cherries would make that process easy.

So this time, I made more of a trifle dessert instead.  Only, I have no trifle bowl.  I searched around in my cabinets and found this pretty cut glass bowl that I rarely use.  I think I need to start getting it out and using it more often.  It’s too pretty to leave in the cabinet all the time.

This dessert starts with ice cream sandwiches.  You can use any type of dish you like to make it.  Or even assemble it as individual servings in small glasses or jars.  Either way, it makes a nice Valentine’s dessert.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Oh, my, that sounds wonderful, and pretty too. I don’t think I can wait until V-day to try it!

  2. I’m sort of in love with this recipe. So easy, yet it looks and sounds so good! I will definitely be making this when the temps decide to come back to normal. It was 10 this morning. TEN. That’s unheard of around here!


  4. I’m German , so I’ll be sprinkling some cherry liquor over those ice cream sandwiches….
