Just made this and its fantastic!!!! It doesn't taste low fat at all, I made it with half fat creme fraiche and it turned out so creamy that you would think its loaded with calories. Thank you so much for posting!!!!-28 May 2013

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!-04 Mar 2010
