This delicious dessert hails from Emeril's Delmonico in New Orleans. Serve this at your next dinner party or gathering and your guests will feel like they are dining at a restaurant. You can make the cake up to two days in advance if you are looking to save time the day of your event.
This is Creamy, Luscious, Delicious. We suggest you make caramel with two cans of the sweetened condensed milk. Use one in the gelato, use the other to dollop on top when you serve it (to really indulge). Folks that love caramel, this is to die for. If you are short on time, you can use the store bought Dulce de Leche that comes in a can.
Decadent and delicious and might just become your go-to dessert. The recipe may seem complicated, but think of it this way. You'll have four bowls for four components that you combine in the end. Melted chocolate, sugar and yolks, meringue, and finally whipped cream. Of course you'll want extra whipped cream for topping and plenty of shaved chocolate.
Total Time: 1 hour plus 2 hours and up to overnight for chilling
