This little Recipe looks good enough to eat...


2 x 250 g tubs Quark**
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons sugar
2 slices German Pumpernickel
2 oz German dark chocolate
1 large jar German cherries in juice


Beat together the Quark, milk, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth. Using a food processor reduce the pumpernickel to fine crumbs. Finely grate the chocolate and mix with the Pumpernickel crumbs. Drain the cherries well. Now make layers in a large glass dish or 6 wine glasses. Put cherries at the base and spoon on some Quark. Scatter over the Pumpernickel. Repeat the layers saving a few cherries and crumbs for the top. Finish with a Quark layer then put the last few cherries on top and sprinkle lightly with crumbs for an attractive finish. Chill overnight and serve.

** Quark is a German yogurt cheese. You can find it in specialty food stores.
