1 Tablespoon Caster Sugar

Stone the Cherries (keep six aside for decoration) and cook them for about 5 minutes in a pot with the sugar until soft.
Let them cool.

Break the chocolate and the butter into small pieces and melt them , with the vanilla, at low in a microwave until melted then stir together..

(or put in a bowl over barely simmering water until melted)

Divide the Cherries between 6 glasses, either wine glasses or little orange juice ones.

Now spoon the chocolate over the cherries in the glasses.
Let these set for several hours in the fridge and then serve with a cherry on top.
