  • 4 Espresso coffee

  1. To prepare the coffee affogato, the first thing to do is to hold the ice cream well, we will have the cups where we are going to present the coffee in the freezer or in the fridge for a long time, it must be very cold.
  2. We put the balls of ice cream that have to be well frozen. You can put one ball or two.
  3. We prepare the coffee just before serving the dessert, we pour it into the cup over the ice cream. I didn't cover everything, I like it to be ice cream on top to mix coffee, ice cream and nuts. But it can be done to cover everything. I put 2 scoops of ice cream.
  4. Chop some walnuts and put them on top. We serve!!!
  5. A dessert that can be prepared until serving time. You can put the balls in each cup or glass and leave it in the freezer until presentation time. Chop the nuts that you are going to serve and put them in a bowl, you can also put pieces of chocolate or chocolate powder, cookies... Oh, a splash of liquor.
