  • 150
    g
    unsalted mixed nuts, roughly chopped
  • 200
    g
    chopped glacé fruit (such as Moir's Glacé cherries, figs,pineapple, or candied peel)

    ml
    cherry liqueur

  • fresh berries
  • ready-made berry coulis
  • 100
    g
    white chocolate, melted
 

Method

 
Serve with dessert wine or berry liqueur.

Allow the ice cream to soften slightly. Stir in the remaining ingredients and spoon into an ice-cream container or rectangular bowl. Place in the freezer and stir every 30 minutes to distribute the fruit and nuts evenly throughout the ice cream, and to prevent them from sinking to the bottom.
Blend the leftover berries from the other recipes in a food processor until smooth, or use ready-made berry coulis. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
To serve Carefully remove the cassata from the container and slice, or use an ice-cream scoop to make cassata balls.
Place on a plate and decorate with fresh berries and coulis. Drizzle with melted white chocolate.
