One of our favorite treats to enjoy at upscale coffee shops are affogatos. An affogato is a coffee based drink with a scoop of gelato or vanilla ice cream. The scoop is placed in a glass and a hot espresso or strong black coffee is poured over the ice cream. The result is a delicious creamy cold and hot coffee drink enjoyed with a small spoon. The remaining melted portion is drank until the last drop is gone. It’s a fun and flavorful way to give the typical ice cream float an adult twist with a hot cup of joe.
Now, I can prepare my own version at home without breaking the bank at those expensive coffee shops. For this recipe, I added chocolate shavings because who doesn’t love chocolate? With just a few simple ingredients, I can be my family’s favorite barista year-round.
