I don’t often go for dessert – but when I do, it’s almost always a “gino”, as we call it in Sweden – basically a white chocolate covered fruit and/or berry bake served over vanilla ice cream. For this red, white and blue version it’s loaded with berries – for a luxurious yet super easy dessert, that you can prep all the way hours before your guests arrive. (For a different, but equally easy, delicious & preppable verson – check out this gino fruit bake with banana, kiwi, raspberries and passion fruit.)

This version comes out as almost a sauce for your ice cream – a sauce filled with delicious sweet white chocolate and tart, flavorful berries, that is. Does it get any better??

Expert tips & FAQ

  • Switch up the banana & berries as you like – other great options to include are raspberries and kiwi but I bet you can find even more.
  • Use the grill function on your oven to get that nice golden crisp on top.
  • If it’s not golden after 10 minutes – just give it five more minutes.
  • Prep it ahead of time – just make it all the way until you’re ready to stick it in the oven, then cover and place it in the fridge until it’s time to bake.
