  • Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches "soft-serve" consistency. Transfer ice cream to a lidded plastic container; cover surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, ice cream should ripen in the freezer at least 2 hours or overnight.

Delicious & ultra easy! Blenderizing the (Ghirardelli 70% Cacao) chocolate speckled tiny bits of chocolate throughout which melt in the mouth. I think that combining maple syrup & vanilla with the classic pairing of chocolate & creme fraiche produces an exquisite flavor everyone loved it. I didn't have enough creme fraiche so I made this using 1/2 creme fraiche & 1/2 low-fat milk. This still made the ice cream rich & delightful & with enough fat content that the ice cream was easily scooped immediately upon removal from the freezer (i.e. it wasn't rock hard). We all thought that IF I were to change this recipe adding coconut would be a good addition. Highly recommended! Read More

I love creme fraiche so I was expecting to really enjoy this recipe but unfortunately the flavor was too strong for me. It was too sour for an ice cream. But it didn't help that I don't have an Ice cream machine (never the less the flavor wasn't right). Read More

Fantastic! I altered the ingredients somewhat. I used homemade creme fraiche which was quite liquid. I also used whole milk instead of a lighter version and doubled the chocoloate because I have a chocolate addiction. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
