Boil the milk with the sugar, vanilla and pinch of salt. Add the mascarpone and mix with a whisk. Allow to cool slightly and add the liquid cream (do not boil again). In the meantime, put by side.

Wash and pit the cherries, mix briefly and season with liquid honey, icing sugar and Amarena cherry juice.

Melt the dark chocolate and mix with neutral vegetable oil - this way the chocolate will not be completely hard when frozen.

As last step of preparing the ice cream, alternate the ice cream mass, the fruit sauce and some chocolate sauce in the mould. Finally, add edible flowers (such as cornflowers or marigolds) on top of the ice cream mass. Put the wooden sticks into the mould and freeze the popsicles for at least 5 hours (it is best to put the ice cream in a freezer overnight)
