  • 1 21-ounce can MUSSELMAN’S® Cherries Jubilee
  • 2 ounces brandy or rum
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream


  1. Step 1
    Heat the cherries jubilee mixed with 1-ounce of alcohol in a chafing dish or shallow pan until warm.

  2. Step 2
    Put remaining alcohol in a large spoon, ignite with a match, pour over the cherries and let blaze.

  3. Step 3
    When the flame goes down, spoon hot cherries jubilee over ice cream.

CAUTION: Remember to use extreme caution while dealing with a liquid that is on fire. Do not carry the dish while flaming, this is best done on the kitchen counter away from the table. Keep a large metal lid on hand, to cover the dish in case the flambe gets out of control.
