No Fuss Roasted Cherry Sauce made with Fresh Cherries


When this roasted cherry sauce recipe came my way, I couldn’t resist posting it. It would be an amazing topping for dairy-free ice cream, store-bought or homemade. I’m planning a sundae bar with this super-easy sauce and the Purely Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Puddin’ Pop Ice Cream, and Hot Fudge Sauce from my guide and cookbook, the 2nd Edition of Go Dairy Free.
