Vanilla Affogato

Are you hosting tonight and need a quick’n’easy recipe to serve? Then this lip-smacking Vanilla Affogato recipe is a fabulous option. All you need is plenty of juice cups or whisky glasses and fill’em up with your favorite toppings.

Topping Ideas

Here are a few delicious topping ideas that you can use:

  • caramel & sea salt
  • chopped peanut or pistachio
  • crushed hard candies
  • sprinkles
  • cookies or Oreos
  • and even orange pieces

Don’t limit your imagination at just these toppings though. Please leave a comment if you come up with your own!

Experiment with Ice Cream, Too

Now, even though vanilla ice cream is the perfect match for affogato, try experimenting with chocolate, strawberry, hazelnut, caramel and other flavors. But be aware that ice cream melts quickly, so make sure to serve the affogato immediately.

As you can see, this dessert is as DIYish as a recipe can get, so it can feel like a new dessert every time you make it – just swap the ingredients!
