Try serving your guests this Christmas season something new for desert! This recipe for affofatos (Italian, meaning “drowned” is perfect for that. You’re going to want to find some really good vanilla ice cream or gelato, to really elevate your dessert to its full potential.
First, you need to find small glass cups that can handle hot liquid.
Then, make some espresso.
Next, scoop a small amount of ice cream (about one scoop) and put it in your cups.
Add your favorite liquor (optional, but I would recommend) to the cups (I recommend Amereto),
and pour your espresso over your ice cream and liquor.
Next, sprinkle with shaved chocolate for garnish.
Or, if you want to get festive with this recipe, replace the Amereto with a peppermint flavoured liquor and garnish with a candy cane!
Finally, you have an aesthetically pleasing desert that also tastes amazing to wow the crowd at any party!
