Homemade Peppermint Mocha Affogato Recipe

The variant of a simple dessert based on ice cream and coffee.

This Affogato will conquer your taste buds in a blink of an eye!

Spring has not yet arrived, and we are already preparing for summer … Have you heard of affogato? It is an Italian dessert, a little two in one, because it mixes coffee and ice cream – traditionally with vanilla. In Italian, “affogato” means “drowned”, in reference to the ice dipped in the coffee. It is eaten quickly, so you don’t lose the surprising hot-cold sensation at the end of the meal. Therefore, in this recipe, we advise you to prepare the affogato at the last minute during a comfy afternoon.

Fun-Fact: You can prepare the peppermint mocha affogato ice cream yourself. However, most ice creams – except sorbets – can be used in affogato. Here is an excellent variant, tested and approved: hazelnut ice cream, caramelized hazelnuts and Gourmesso Nocciola coffee.
