Vanilla Hazelnut Dream Dessert

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Annacia

Another glorious use for coffee. The syrup can be made early in the day. The biscotti can be home made or store bought.

I had never made a coffee syrup before. It's worth not brewing the coffee too strong or the syrup takes on a very strong, almost bitter flavour once it has reduced. I really enjoyed the combination of coffee and ice cream- perhaps it could benefit from some Baileys irish cream being added over the top or to the syrup. Thanks for a new way to serve coffee!
