Steps

1. Put the dried fruit in a container and soak it in the favoring liqueur. Chop the chocolate bar and nuts finely.
2. Line a pound cake mold with a sheet of parchment paper.
3. Beat the heavy cream and sugar until stiff peaks form.
4. Add the dried fruits from Step 1 into the whipped cream.
5. Pour the Step 4 mixture into the pound cake mold, chill in the freezer until firm, and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

The cassata that I had at a restaurant was so delicious, so I made an easy version at home.
