  1. Put the caramel sauce into a small saucepan and heat until loosened and warmed through. Remove from the heat and stir through the Pedro Ximenez sherry. Allow to cool slightly and serve warm, or cool to room temperature.
  2. Put the pecan halves and almond flakes into a frying pan. Heat, tossing frequently, for 2-3 mins until lightly toasted. Set aside to cool.
  3. Line up 4 sundae or serving glasses and add a few teaspoonfuls of the sauce into the bottom of each one. Layer up the remaining sauce with scoops of the vanilla ice cream, the shortbread biscuits, the dates and most of the nuts. Garnish with the extra slices of dates and the remaining nuts.
