What do you get when you combine two of my absolute favorite foods, coffee and ice cream? Cafe Affogato.  What’s the only way to make Affogato more perfect than it already is?  Add booze.  

If that sounds about right to you, then let me introduce you to my take on this classic dessert;  Boozy Salted Caramel Affogato.  Or rather an ice cream sundae all grown up.

Traditionally, affogato is a coffee-based dessert, with a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream “drowned” in hot espresso.  Drowned because Affogato quite literally means “drowned” in Italian, and it sums up the wonderful molten mix of vanilla, coffee and the “puddle” that it makes together.  

For me it’s the perfect way to end any evening.  Of course it wouldn’t be my favorite without just a touch of booze and Jackson Morgan Salted Caramel Southern Cream seemed like Affogato’s perfect compliment. It’s almost as if the Salted Caramel Cream was created solely for this dessert. 

I always have every Jackson Morgan Southern Cream flavors on hand because I’m constantly reaching for them when it comes to baking not just cocktailing.  Remember my Boozy Chocolate Peppermint Bread Pudding from last year.   But it wasn’t till recently that I thought of adding it to my Affogato.

The Salted Caramel melts seamlessly into the vanilla ice cream and Nespresso resulting in the most delicious Affogato puddle possible.  And just to take it over the edge I added pumpkin seeds and fresh cinnamon to provide that seasonal crunch.

So to review: 1/2 cup Jackson Morgan Salted Caramel Souther Cream, 1 scoop of gelato or vanilla ice cream, 1 shot of piping hot of espresso poured over the ice cream, top with pumpkin seeds and a sprinkling of cinnamon.  Serve immediately and enjoy your caramel Affogato puddle.  Truly, MKR
