- Carefully slice the St Pierre Tear & Share Brioche in half lengthways.
- Spread the bottom layer with the dark chocolate sauce mixture, then add the whipped cream and then the cherry mixture.
- Carefully place the top of the sliced St Pierre Tear & Share Brioche on top and then decorate with your chosen toppings such as a dusting of cocoa powder, chocolate shavings or fresh or frozen whole cherries.
- Slice, serve and enjoy!
