made for large party. Had 2 pieces to bring home. Everyone complimentary. Had requests for website. Thank you but have the feeling this should reserved for large parties where unlikely for anyone to overdo. I didn't think the sauce was thickening so I added sugar. My mistake, It made candy but was still able to pour. Although, it didn't soak in. I'm wondering if powdered cocoa would make a nice chocolate version as that sounds like a great match with cherries? Thanks, Marcia Duval.
