Total time: 15 minutes | Serves 2
  • 1/4 cup walnut pieces
  • 2 ounces high-quality bittersweet chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 scoops coffee gelato (about 1/2 cup per serving)
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped white chocolate

Step 1Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet and toast them until fragrant, 5 to 6 minutes. Do not let them brown. Cool. (Can be done ahead and frozen. Return to room temperature before using.)

Step 2Place the chocolate, butter, sugar and milk in a microwave-safe dish that holds 3 cups. Cook on 10% power for 1 minute stirring once after 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Stir in the baking powder and vanilla. (This can be made a week ahead and refrigerated or frozen up to 1 month. Let it come to room temperature before reheating.)

Step 3Place 2 scoops of gelato into each of 2 shallow dessert plates. Spoon the hot sauce over, dividing evenly. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons each of white chocolate and walnuts over both sundaes. Serve immediately.
