I’m usually not a fan of cheesecake style desserts that use gelatine as a setting agent, but in this case I think the chocolate and cherries add good strong flavours and should make it taste really good. I also like the idea of using Gaiety biscuits for the base.
For quite a few years this was one of Mum’s favourite dessert recipes, probably because Dad liked it on his nightly bowl of ice cream. Everytime I looked in their fridge there seemed to be a jar there marinating. I think with the addition of a few other fruits it could still be good today.
