Review: Williams-Sonoma's Ice Cream Starter

I was in my local Williams-Sonoma last week, and I saw a product called Ice Cream Starter, and I was intrigued.  It comes in three flavors - vanilla, chocolate, and caramel.  I am such a caramel fiend, so I thought I would give it a try, and do a review here!

Each can has two packets inside that each make a quart - it's up to you if you want to use one or both at a time.

Basically, you mix up one packet of the Starter with 1.5 cups of cold half-and-half and 1.5 cups of cold heavy cream, then add it to your ice cream maker for the time listed in your manual.

(I went with fat-free half-and-half, and the end product was still creamy and luscious.)

Isn't the ice cream gorgeous when it comes out of the machine?

I decided to do some mix-ins, so I chopped up some chocolate covered caramels, and some chocolate-filled wafer rolls (aka Pirouettes).

Oh my, the end product is SO GOOD!!!  The caramel flavor is perfect, with a little hint of maple, and the final product is smooth and creamy.  I love everything about it, and recommend that you give it a try, pronto!

I hope you enjoyed this review - I'd love to hear from you in the comments section if there are any other products that you would like me to review here.
