This is hands down one of the easiest dessert to whip up when you’re entertaining or have friends dropping in for a last minute catch-up. Made with vanilla ice cream, espresso coffee and a cheeky dash of liqueur, this is the perfect treat for the holiday season.
Did you know Affogato means 'drowned' in Italian? Let's drown in some coffee right now and enjoy... [insert drooling emoji]
Prep time: 5 minutes
- 2 scoops high quality vanilla ice cream
- 1 shot espresso per person
- 1 tbsp nut or coffee liqueur (optional)
- Dark chocolate shavings or wafer for decoration
Brew an espresso (one per person).
Scoop 1-2 scoops of vanilla ice cream into a small glass or bowl and pour over a shot of espresso.
Pour 1 tbsp of nut liqueur or your liqueur of choice over the ice cream and grate over a little dark chocolate, or simply add a chocolate wafer to decorate.
You can also spoon ice-cream into cups in advance and put back into the freezer, ready to serve when your guests arrive.
