METHOD

In a food processor, place every ingredient for the base, and process until well processed but still slightly crumbly. Press the crust into the bottom of the mold. In a high-speed blender, place every ingredient for the chocolate caramel layer and blend well until smooth. Add more sweetener if you need. Layer the mixture above the base. Cool it in the freezer until it sets.

 

Repeat the same process for the cherry layer and freeze until it sets. Repeat the same process for the vanilla layer and freeze it overnight. In a small bowl, whisk together every ingredient for the chocolate layer until smooth. Take out the cake from the mold and pour the chocolate mixture over the top and garnish with cherries.
