Chocolate cherry crumble with sweet, juicy cherries topped with a crunchy, delicious topping filled with chocolate chips. Add a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and try to pace your self from not eating the whole thing in one sitting!
As cherry season is coming to an end here in my part of the world I loaded up on them at the market to make all of my favorite cherry recipes.
The crumble topping comes together quickly, just mix everything together with your fingers. The hardest part of the whole recipe is pitting cherries. Before next summer I will definitely invest in a cherry pitter, from what I hear it is money well spent. Cant believe I have made this long without one!

Easy to make Chocolate cherry crumble with sweet, juicy cherries topped with a crunchy topping filled with chocolate chips.
- 800 g cherries, pitted and halved
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- 100 g butter, room temperature
- 110 g all purpose flour
- 60 g oats
- 100 g sugar, 2 tablespoon reserved
- 100 g good quality dark chocolate, chopped
Pre heat the oven to 180C
Stir the cherries, corn starch and 2 tablespoon sugar in a bowl until well coated and the mixture is no longer white. Transfer the fruit mixture to a deep pie pan, about 25 cm (10-inch) or 4 individual pie pans, and set aside while you prepare the crumble topping.
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients using your fingers until small and large clumps form. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the filling and bake for 20-25 minutes. The filling should be bubbling at the edges and the toping golden brown. Let the crumble rest for about 10-15 minutes before serving with your favorite vanilla ice cream.
