Hot chocolate sauce with pears, almonds and ice cream.


  • 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


  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 3
    Whip the remaining 150ml of double cream until thick but still soft. Roughly chop the almonds.
  • STEP 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.
  • STEP 5
    Pour the warm chocolate sauce on the top of each glass and sprinkle some almonds on top. Eat straight away.
