Is it a dessert you drink? Or is it a drink you eat? Affogato, just another wonderful bit of magic from Italy, is traditionally vanilla ice cream “drowned” in a shot of hot espresso. This version uses a scoop of chocolate-peanut butter gelato which is a bit like gilding the lily, but fabulous.Two ingredients! It is “facile come questo” or as “easy as this”.

Gelato or ice cream of your choice….espresso hot..maybe a sprinkling of  cocoa  or instant espresso powder? The hot espresso flows over the gelato starting the melt…divine. An easy dessert for dinner parties…no cooking in this summer heat…immensely satisfying.
