Remove and discard the pits from half the cherries and then chop finely. Set aside.

In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, add the amaranth and almond milk. Simmer for 30 minutes.

Add the chocolate and stir until melted. Add the maple syrup, vanilla paste, salt and chopped cherries and fold through. Turn off the heat and cover with a lid for another 5 minutes.
