Affogato with Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream & Kahlua


Sometimes, it's the simple things that are the best!  Just three ingredients go into this Italian dessert.  Well, it's technically a drink, but I say it's both!  The word affogato means "drowned" in Italian.  Simply drown a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream in hot espresso and a splash of Kahlua.  Voila!  You have a delicious dessert that will send coffee lovers to heaven!



Happy Friday!


Ingredients:


  • 1 scoop mint chocolate chip ice cream
  • 1 to 2 shots espresso, 1 1/2 oz to 3 oz (depending on your scoop size)
  • Splash Kahlua, or to taste 
  • Optional:  Whipped cream 


Directions:

Place a scoop of ice cream in a glass or dessert dish.  Pour the espresso over all and add the Kahlua.  

Top with whipped cream, if desired.  

Enjoy!
