It’s that bitter, earthy flavor contrast with sweet cream that gets me every time. So naturally when I discovered I had all the fixings for an impromptu coffee dessert, I had to try it.
Affogato in Italian means “drowned,” and generally refers to a coffee dessert with a shot or two of espresso poured over the top.
After checking my fridge, I was delighted to find some leftover Dulce de Leche from my last recipe extravaganza.
Whereas affogato usually has more ice cream than coffee, I decided to create a caramel-flavored coffee with ice cream on the side.
- Freshly brewed coffee
- Dulce de Leche
- Skinny Dippers popcicles
- Whipped cream
The assembly is so amazingly simple, too.
1. Pour coffee into desired glass.
2. Mix in 1 to 2 tbs. of Dulce de Leche.
3. Unwrap Skinny Dipper and submerge in coffee.
4. Top with whipped cream.
Enjoying coffee and dessert doesn’t have to cost you $10 for a pint of ice cream and a latte.
Get creative with what you have at home instead.
