The One-Minute Dessert for Coffee Lovers

by - Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Are you a coffee-lover? Be warned, you're going to be addicted to this super simple dessert. I tried my first affogato this summer and fell in love with the easy but delicious mix of espresso and ice cream. I came up with this recipe using the Saeco Moltio espresso machine and added a minty spin for the holidays:

This is a great treat to enjoy throughout the season... have a cup while you're trimming the tree or sitting by the fire. Whip one up for those unexpected guests. It's a fun way to make your boring coffee feel special, and takes only one minute to put together:

How to make a Peppermint Chocolate Affogato:

1. Brew a shot of espresso
2. Put a scoop of ice cream in a cup. I used chocolate but vanilla or coffee flavoured ice cream will also work well

3. Pour the espresso over the ice cream

4. Add a dash of cocoa and a peppermint stick. Enjoy!

I can't stop having these. They're so good and the mix of hot and cold definitely has me in the holiday mood. Will you try one?
