Chop the chocolate, and place in a large bowl.
Bring the cream to a boil, and then pour it over the chocolate, mix them with a rubber spatula till well incorporated.
Allow this ganache to cool. Reserve a third of it for plating, and mix in the rest with the ice cream.
Whip the cream until it has soft peaks. Then, fold into the chocolate mixture and place in the freezer to allow it to rest.
For the caramelised walnuts: Toast the walnuts in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 6 minutes. Allow them to cool completely and place in a bowl near the stove. Next to this, place a tray lined with baking paper and two forks.
In a thick-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, melt the sugar till it is a light amber colour for about 4-5 minutes, stir gently throughout.
As soon as the caramel is ready, add in the walnuts, mixing thoroughly to ensure each is coated well.
Quickly turn this onto the tray and separate the walnuts by using the forks. This will be extremely hot, so be careful and do not touch it at this stage. Allow to cool.
Serve chilled and enjoy!
