Here is one of my favorite treats (I think I got the idea from the wonderful Barefoot Contessa) that I have been making variations of for years. It’s great any time of year. I sort of LOVE coffee more than any other food on the planet so once in a while I just have to make it! I try to throw together desserts like this because I cannot bake to save my life! It is great for one person or ten people. It’s great for a date night or entertaining a crowd or for a late night snack. And it is never out of season!
1. brew some strong Coffee or Espresso
2. scoop some good quality vanilla ice cream into fancy bowls or mugs
3. pour hot coffee over the ice cream
4. garnish w/ dark chocolate covered espresso beans
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
