  • 50g almonds
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 25g milk chocolate
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • 300ml double cream
  • 1 tin of pear halves in syrup
  • 8 scoops of good vanilla ice cream


    1. Place the almonds in a bowl and add the icing sugar and water. Stir until the almonds are evenly coated and heat up a medium sized frying pan. Add the almonds and stir until caramelised. Set aside.
    2. Melt the chocolates, syrup and 150ml of the double cream over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir every now and again until melted, then take off the heat until stir until smooth.
    3. Whip the remaining 150ml of double cream until thick but still soft. Roughly chop the almonds.
    4. Add one scoop of ice cream to each sundae glass or bowl. Place a pear halve on top, followed by a dollop of thick cream. Sprinkle over some almonds and repeat again with ice cream, pear and cream, leaving the almonds out this time.
    5. Pour the warm chocolate sauce on the top of each glass and sprinkle some almonds on top. Eat straight away.
