Recipe: Chocolate Covered Cherry Flotation Device

In the event of a water landing, this won’t do you any good, but if you feel like you’re barely swimming through these early Autumn days, this float will give you a much-needed boost. It could be the sugar, it could be the caffeine, it could be the reminiscences of the halcyon days of your youth, killing time at the soda fountain.



Place ice cream in a pint glass, cover with dark chocolate sauce. Pour the cherry and dark chocolate syrup over it, then fill with cola. Garnish with a cherry, whipped cream, chocolate shavings, all or none of the above.
