Everything is more fun with ice cream, and the easiest way to whip up a batch of velvety chocolate is with our all-natural ice cream starter. It derives its dark, rich character from premium Guittard cocoa, highlighted by a splash of Madagascar Bourbon vanilla. Simply mix with heavy cream and half-and-half, pour into your ice cream maker and freeze. Customize with favorite mix-ins like chocolate chips, chopped nuts, crushed cookies or candy sprinkles. In about 30 minutes, you’ll enjoy sweet, creamy ice cream.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Ice Cream! I've tried three of the flavors of W-S ice cream starter. The best is the chocolate: creamy, flavorful, very good texture. Far better than any store bought ice cream. The directions are accurate, and the mix of cream and half and half are properly proportioned. The vanilla is good, the caramel is a little sweet, but the chocolate is excellent. I add toasted coconut and pecans in the last five minutes of mixing for additional interest. Freezing in the W-S storage tub takes about 5 - 6 hours. You can also freeze in a covered stainless steel bowl and that takes about 4 hours. I have purchased more and will use frequently.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Easy to make and good tasting Made this for my brother and I and it is really yummy. Very easy too. If you like ice cream soft (not runny soft), then eat it right after it is finished and if you want it a little firmer, then put it in the freezer. Either way it is good. Highly recommend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Creamy and Chocolatey I've tried a few of the Williams-Sonoma ice cream starters and have been pleased with them all so far. They've all been creamy, just make sure that you fully dissolve the mix before putting into your machine. Flavors have always been nicely present - not too light, but not overly strong. I'm wondering if anyone has tried using the starter with alternative dairy products like coconut or almond milk?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich and Decadent We prefer to eat this ice cream with strawberries. The flavor is definitely strong, but in a very good way! Definitely made for chocolate lovers. Would definitely recommend.
