Who doesn't love espresso? I love coffee and I love ice cream, so what better way to enjoy them than together. When I saw this recipe I couldn't help but try it! And we were NOT disappointed!
If you have one of those fancy espresso makers use it, but I have this Bialetti Espresso Maker that works perfectly on the stove. You can get one at a specialty cooking store.
Here is what you do:
Coffee Ice Cream Affogato
Martha Stewart's Dinner at Home Cookbook
1 pint coffee gelato or ice cream (I used Bryers)
4 oz liqueur, such as sambuca, amaretto or Frangelico (optional) (I skipped this)
4 demitasse cups freshly brewed espresso
Just before serving, scoop gelato into four small bowls or large coffee cups. Divide liqueur among four small glasses, if using; serve liqueur and espresso alongside each bowl for guests to pour over the gelato.
