Yield 2 servings
1 litre frozen sour cherries
3 decilitre sugar
4 decilitre plant milk, I used oat milk*
100 gram dark chocolate, good quality
Combine cherries and sugar in a medium saucepan and place over medium heat. Stir to coat cherries in sugar. Let simmer for around 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved.
Set a strainer over a medium bowl and pour cherry mixture into the strainer. Press down on the solids until all the juice has gone through the strainer. Discard solids and chill the syrup until ready to use.
Syrup will keep refrigerated for up to two weeks.
Add dark chocolate and milk in a saucepan. Gently bring to a simmer, stirring often until the chocolate has dissolved in the milk.
Pour over into a cup and serve with a tablespoon or two of Cherry syrup.
