Hot Chocolate Affogato


A traditional affogato is a scoop of vanilla ice cream or gelato with hot espresso poured over the top.

Once, when my kids were playing in the snow, I was making them hot chocolate, but had no marshmallows to go with it. When I found some vanilla ice cream, I decided to make my own version of affogati for them. They have loved them ever since. The best part is that the hot chocolate cools down very quickly, eliminating my kids’ nags for ice cubes to cool down their hot chocolate.
