Affogato

 

We have many coffee addicts in the family. Affagato appeals to everyone’s palette. The only thing I have to prepare is the chocolate sauce. Otherwise, it is really an assembly process to put the dessert together. Planning to serve this at the upcoming memorial day bbq. Hope our guests like it too.
