These are really easy to make, and their flavor improves if they're made a few weeks in advance, and stored in the freezer.

Made this for my mother since she enjoys this type of dessert. Turned out pretty well. Omitted the green cherries and doubled the amount of red ones. Nice garnished with raisins too.
