My husband eats his first spoon of this ice cream.
“Mmm… oh, that’s good.” Eats another spoonful.
“Seriously, this is good stuff.” Yet another spoonful disappears.
“This is the best ice cream you’ve ever made.”
Yes, even this Baking Beauty has a way of still surprising her husband after 13 years of marriage. This ice cream is a prime example of that. And he was right. This ice cream is nothing like any of the others I’ve ever made. This Mocha Fudge Ripple Ice Cream is super rich, smooth & silky, even after being in the freezer for a week (how did that happen?!? Just too many baked goodies going through the kitchen lately, I guess). If I were to slap a label on this ice cream, it would read “Warning: not for the faint of heart”. It is seriously that good.
I let David Lebovitz take the lead on this ice cream, and I just followed, adding my own flourishes & ideas along the way. I mean, the man knows a thing or two about ice cream. He even wrote the book on it, he’s that good. I’ve had my eye on this book for a while already, it’s on my wish list.
For this recipe, I used his vanilla ice cream as the base, and just went a little wild from there. I think he’d approve. 🙂
