    To serve, let stand at room temperature 5 to 10 minutes. Carefully remove side of pan. Garnish individual servings with whipped cream and a cherry.

  • It's a snap to spread the fudge topping over the ice cream. Just spoon the topping into a resealable food-storage plastic bag, cut off a small tip from a corner and squeeze.
  • This special dessert keeps well in the freezer for up to two weeks. Make the dessert, freeze until firm, then cover with foil to store.
