Blackberry and Hazelnut Sundaes

prep time: 10
cook time: 4


  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons hazelnut liqueur or amaretto
  • 1/3 cup hazelnuts (about 1/4 cup), toasted, husked, chopped
  • Vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream
  • 3 cups basket fresh blackberries


Combine sugar, brown sugar and water in heavy small saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until both sugars dissolve. Add butter and stir until melted. Increase heat and boil until sauce is reduced to 1/2 cup, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix in liqueur and nuts. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Let stand at room temperature. Before using, stir over low heat until heated through and smooth.)

Scoop frozen yogurt into bowls. Spoon warm sauce over. Top with berries.
