Although not a true spumoni ice cream. this dessert is so and pretty. Freeze solid for an ice cream texture or partially frozen for a mousse like texture. I like to make this for my family for festive occasions.
2 cups heavy cream
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk ( not evaporated)
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
1 teaspoon rum extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup finely chopped toasted nuts of choice
Chill milk and cream in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Then whip both together with an electric mixture until soft peaks form. Blend in the cherry pie filling, extract and chips and nuts. Place in an 8- or 9-inch square pan. Cover and freeze firm.
Serve as is or add ice cream toppings of choice.
