1/4
cup chopped red candied cherries
1
quart vanilla ice cream, slightly softened

Tips  

This easy dessert is perfect to make ahead and keep in the freezer to be ready for drop-in guests. A drizzle of chocolate sauce on the dessert plate will make it even more special. Put your guests in a winter wonderland mood by presenting tortoni on clear glass plates sprinkled with coarse decorating sugar. Use silver, gold or other decorative cupcake liners available in supermarkets and party stores.
