Roasted Strawberry Sauce

  • lbs fresh strawberries, stemmed and quartered
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean

Chocolate Sauce

  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 5 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp strawberry or raspberry liqueur

To serve

  • 9 cups vanilla ice cream
  • ½ lb fresh strawberries, stemmed and quartered


To make Roasted Strawberry Sauce:

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • In blender, purée 1½ cups of the strawberries; strain through fine-meshed strainer, pushing on strawberry purée with a spoon. Combine purée with remaining 3 cups strawberries and sugar.
  • Slit vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out seeds; add bean and seeds to strawberry mixture. Let stand 10 minutes; transfer to shallow baking dish large enough to hold strawberries in one layer.
  • Roast in oven about 20 minutes or until strawberries are cooked and juices have reduced to a syrup.

To make Chocolate Sauce:

  • In saucepan, bring sugar and 3 tablespoons water to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until sugar dissolves. Add cream and chocolate. Cook over low heat, stirring, until chocolate melts. Remove from heat; add liqueur.

To serve:

  • Spoon 2 tablespoons Chocolate Sauce in the bottom of each of 6 sundae glasses.
  • Add a (¾-cup) scoop ice cream; top with 2 tablespoons Roasted Strawberry Sauce. Repeat layers. Top each with ¼ cup fresh strawberries.
