Tiramisu Affogato




Cream with your coffee? Puh-lease.

Haven’t you heard melted ice cream makes everything better? I hear of people using it to bake stuff, so why not put it in your coffee? If you’re really feeling adventurous, I suggest mascarpone ice cream, topped with chocolate shavings, served with lady fingers. Yes, now THAT’S what I call a dessert. 

This tiramisu affogato puts frappucinos to shame. It’s like a dreamy coffee milkshake/float/sundae all combined into one heavenly glass.

Originally, affogatos are served with a vanilla gelato and a shot of espresso. You can choose to use a shot of espresso if you’re a coffee fanatic like my husband, but if you’re like me, regular coffee works too. 

I made the mistake of not using decaf coffee when making this. I honestly wasn’t expecting it to be so darn good, and I ended up eating the whole thing after these photos. At 6pm. No, I didn’t get much sleep last night.

Dip it, slurp it, inhale it. The choice is yours.
