Dolce Zza in DC serves this fabulous and easy to make dessert called the Affogato. It is easy to replicate and is perfect for a night next to the fire-place, in front of the TV or as a special treat to your guests. You can make it more or less fancy just by choosing a fancy cup or ornate bowl, or just going for your favorite big mug.
The recipe for one serving is as follows:
You will need one serving cup that can accommodate up to 16 ounces of fluid.
2 espresso shots made fresh. If you don’t have espresso shots then make 8 ounces instant coffee with two tablespoons. Instant coffee doesn’t have the same intensity of flavor, but in a pinch you can get by.
One scoop of a gelato. I prefer a nut based flavor (pistachio or coconut), caramel, chocolate, or vanilla are good as well.
Poor the hot coffee in your serving cup then plop the scoop of gelato into it.
Et Voila! Savor and Enjoy!
