Neapolitian Sundaes


  • 1 vanilla bean

  • 1 pint strawberries, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 4 shots Amaretto or other almond liqueur or almond syrup

  • 1 pint chocolate ice cream

  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream

  • Canister whipped cream

  • Sliced almonds


In a small pot, combine split and scraped vanilla bean, sliced berries, sugar and liqueur or syrup. Place over low heat and let berries warm gently. In about 15 -20 minutes, a thick sauce will form. Scoop a big scoop of each flavor of ice cream into dishes. Pull vanilla bean out of sauce and pour the sauce over ice cream. Top ice cream with whipped cream and nuts and serve.
