Hands-on time: Approx. 15 minutes 

Fridge/Freezer time: 10 hours to overnight

Makes: Approx. 2L 


Part A 

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1x 50 g Purdys Classic White Chocolate Bar
  • 6 Maple Sweet Georgia Browns 

Part B 

  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 300ml (1 can) sweetened condensed milk 
  • Optional: 2 tbsp (1 ounce) bourbon  
  1. Before you begin, place a large bowl or extra-large cake pan into the freezer. 
  2. Using a paring knife, pop the Gold Chocolate tops off the 6 Maple Sweet Georgia Browns. 
  3. Finely chop the gold chocolate and reserve the leftover maple caramel and nuts for later.  
  4. Finely chop the Classic White Chocolate Bar and place it into a bowl with the chopped Gold Chocolate.  
  5. Place the cream (part A) and vanilla extract into a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to the boil. 
  6. Once boiled, pour the cream over the chocolate, and whisk until the chocolate has completely melted and combined.  
  7. Add the cream (part B) and whisk to incorporate. Cover with plastic wrap touching the surface and place into the refrigerator for a minimum of 5 hours, or overnight. 
  8. After at least 5 hours in the fridge, transfer the chilled ice cream base into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, or you can whisk by hand or with a hand-held beater. 
  9. Add the salt, condensed milk, and optional bourbon, and whisk until the mixture thickens and holds a groove in the top when the whisk is dragged across the surface – about 5 minutes by machine or 5-10 minutes by hand. 
  10. Chop the reserved maple caramel and pecans into chunks and fold into the ice cream base.   
  11. Transfer the mixture into the pre-chilled bowl and cover with plastic wrap touching the surface. Place into the freezer for a minimum of 4-5 hours.  
  12. When it is frozen, scoop and enjoy!
