Put the berries, sugar, and lemon juice in a saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring gently, until heated through and the berries soften.

Remove from the heat. Push the sauce through a mesh sieve, pressing firmly on the fruit with the back of a wooden spoon to extract as much sauce as possible. Cool and then refrigerate until needed. You should have about 1 cup of sauce.

Put the cream and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate. Let stand for about a minute and then whisk until smooth. Stir in the vanilla. Let cool until warm before serving. You should have about 1 1/4 cups of sauce.

You can make the chocolate sauce ahead of time and reheat in a saucepan or the microwave before serving.

Spoon the ice cream into 4 individual bowls. Top with chocolate sauce and then spoon some raspberry sauce over the chocolate. Dollop whipped cream on top and generously scatter nuts and sprinkles over the cream. Top each sundae with heart-shaped candies.
