For me this was spot on...........I am not a lover of overly sweet desserts, so this had all that I needed....fruit, nuts and cream as well as delicious mascarpone. The cocount also added natural sweetness to the sauce, which enhanced the gelato. I used my ice cream maker and it worked perfectly! I MIGHT omit the cranberries next time, as I think that this was just perfect with the nuts and orange! Made for ZWT4 - merci Maito! FT:-)
This was okay. I did make a few changes... there was no sugar listed and we tasted it without it and ended up adding 1.25 cups of powdered sugar. It didn't need any extra cream or milk, so I wonder if the poster just forgot this? Otherwise, it's not very sweet at all. Even the little bit you get from the orange zest and cranberries. With the sugar, it was pretty good. We made the sauce, but forgot to include it for the photo. It was good with the sugar added, but a little too busy. If we make again, I think we'll leave out the nuts and cranberries and just use the orange and chocolate. Oh yes, we also added 2 tsp of cocoa powder because the kids wanted it more chocolaty.
