Hi Everyone, this Coffee Affogato is so easy to make because it only has 2 ingredients: Coffee and ice cream.
I shot this recipe a while ago and could not find the photos and just found them the other day while looking through recipe photos; I am so glad to finally share it with you.
This recipe is based on traditional Affogato which is a shot of espresso and Gelato or ice cream. Coffee Affogato is not as strong/heavy/rich as traditional Affogato.

It’s always nice to have a little something on top of a dessert, I added cinnamon and a sprig of fresh mint from my garden.

You could add sprinkles, chocolate or caramel or another flavor of sauce to top it off. Whipped cream would also be lovely on top.
