Buy mini dark chocolate chips instead of regular dark chocolate chips and you won't have to bother with chopping the chips into smaller chunks.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 6
1 (8-ounce) container whipped topping
1 (3-ounce) packet instant pistachio pudding
2 cups fresh cherries
½ cup dark chocolate chips, roughly chopped
¼ cup shelled pistachios, chopped
Stir whipped topping and pudding mix together in a large mixing bowl. Mix well, making sure the mix dissolves completely into the topping.
Remove the stems and pits from the cherries.
Chop cherries into quarters. You should end up with about 1 cup chopped cherries. Add cherries to bowl.

Classic spumoni is molded Italian ice cream containing a layer of chocolate and a layer of vanilla with candied fruits and nuts in a whipped cream layer. However, modern spumoni is an American-Italian ice cream that evolved from the classic dessert. Most modern spumoni ice creams contain a chocolate layer, a cherry layer with candied cherries, and a pistachio layer with chopped pistachios.
