The rasberry ripple sauce was perfect!
I want to be able to give this 4.5 stars. I liked it but I didn't love it more than other ice cream bases... my husband and brother thought it was brilliant. It wasn't as mellow white chocolately as I wanted it to be. Tasted a lot like my standard vanilla custard ice cream base. I did really enjoy the raspberry sauce and will probably steal that part for other recipes. I halved that recipe and used the preserves.
this was really good. I made it with just raspberries cause I love them.
