My Favorite Things #3

My new favorite dessert, gelato affogato (Italian for "drowned ice cream"). Scoop vanilla ice cream or gelato into bowls. Top each scoop with a good strong shot of espresso, a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream, and grated dark chocolate. Serve immediately.

Oh baby, this is good. Jared and I made it for my 22nd birthday party last Friday. Between the espresso and cream, it's a two-person operation, especially when you're serving eleven people and trying not to melt the ice cream . . .
