  1. Blend the chocolate and milk together in a blender on high until smooth; add the creme fraiche, sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Blend again until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. 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!

This is delicious! I made a half batch to use up some creme fraiche and next time I'll be buying some just to make this!

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).
