100g walnuts, pistachio or blanched almonds, chopped
2 litres French vanilla ice cream

Cooking Preparation

Line the base and sides of a 1.5litre pudding bowl with plastic film. Place the butter, dried fruit, cherries, brown sugar and cream in a saucepan. Heat until the butter is melted. Add the brandy and baking soda. Simmer for 3-4 minutes until the baking soda stops fizzing. Stir in the nuts. Cool a little. Break up the ice cream in a large bowl. Stir in the fruit mixture while still warm. Pour into the prepared pudding basin. Freeze for at least 24 hours before turning onto a serving plate. Slowly pour the melted chocolate over the top allowing it to dribble down the sides.
