Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 0 minutes


  • 1 Tear & Share Brioche

For the sauce

  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 30g butter
  • 30g caster sugar
  • 50ml double cream
  • 2 tbsps cherry liqueur (Kirsch or Brandy)

For the filling

  1. For the sauce, melt the dark chocolate with the butter, caster sugar and double cream gently in a heat proof bowl – either in a microwave or over a pan of simmering water. Be careful not to burn the chocolate. Then stir in the cherry liqueur and leave to cool until it is a thick and spreadable consistency.
  2. For the filling, whisk the double or whipping cream and sugar into stiff peaks in a separate bowl.
  3. In a third bowl, mix the drained cherries, cherry jam and cherry liqueur.
  4. Carefully slice the St Pierre Tear & Share Brioche in half lengthways.
  5. Spread the bottom layer with the dark chocolate sauce mixture, then add the whipped cream and then the cherry mixture.
  6. 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.
  7. Slice, serve and enjoy!
