This is incredibly simple and will blow your mind. It is one of my favorite desserts.


  1. Scoop the ice cream into a dish.
  2. Pour the hot shot of espresso over it.

DH made this with more coffee and low fat coffee ice cream, and it was just delicious! Make sure the coffee is not too hot, so the ice cream doesn't completely melt.

This is too delicious. Lucky for me, my BF doesn't like coffee so this made one lovely large serving all for me! Yum! I used Double Rainbow French Vanilla ice cream- its really good and apparently "the official ice cream of San Francisco" (don't know why that matters) Anyhow, this is just a dream- warm, spicy-bitter espresso with creamy smooth vanilla ice cream. I love coffee ice cream, but again, because BF doesn't like coffee I never get it. I would say this is a nice compromise, but its not really- its even better! Be sure your espresso is quite hot- I let mine cool a bit while I prepared the ice cream and the ice cream cooled it too quickly. Lovely lovely recipe. Will make again at every possible opportunity. :)
