It’s no secret—cherries and dark chocolate have long been best friends. The rich and slightly bitter dark chocolate marries so well with the sweet and bold red cherry. This recipe for vegan cherry chocolate chunk ice cream uses puréed and chopped cherries to enhance the flavor and texture.
You can use frozen cherries in a pinch, but fresh cherries make this ice cream out of this world. Feel free to omit the amaretto if you prefer, but be sure to use a high-quality dark chocolate—it makes a huge difference!
