Roasting cherries enhances the natural sweetness and big flavour of the fruit. Paired with a decadent chocolate dipping sauce, this speedy dessert is the perfect way to finish off an alfresco dinner party.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the cherries on a baking tray and drizzle with the honey, kirsch (if using) and the oil. Toss to coat, then roast for around 5-10 mins, until the cherries are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate, cream, syrup and kirsch (if using) in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Pour into a serving bowl and serve with the roasted cherries for dipping.
