  • 1¼, cups heavy or whipping cream

In a bowl, whisk together ½ cup of the half-and-half, the sugar, cornstarch, and salt.

In a small saucepan, bring the remaining ¼ cups half-and-half just to a boil over medium heat. Whisk in the sugar mixture and boil until thickened, about 2 to 3 minutes.

When the ice cream is almost frozen, spoon in the framboise, if desired, and churn until blended in, about 1 minute more, Add the chocolate truffles and churn until blended in, about 15 seconds more.
