Decadent Merengue Affogato
I made this decadent Affogato desert a few months ago when I invited a friend for dinner at the last minute and quickly realized I had no desert to serve and basically no time to make or bake one. I needed something I could make in 5 minutes right before serving. I remembered I had vanilla Ice cream in the freezer so making a delicious affogato was just perfect!
I just tweaked the basic recipe a bit and added crushed meringue (mini pavlovas) and some chocolate shards. The result? A super fast, decadent and delicious desert!
Preparation : 5 min
Serves : 2
What you’ll need:
2 tsp of espresso powder
1 cup of boiling water
Vanilla Ice cream
Store bought meringue or mini pavlovas
Chocolate vermicelli or shards to sprinkle
Affogato recipe in 5 minutes
How to make it:
Boil a cup of water and pour into a jug. Add 2 tsp of espresso powder. You can also use decaff if the caffeine is too strong for you or any of your guests.
Scoop out 2 vanilla ice cream balls into each cup.
Crush the meringue with your hands into pieces on top.
Sprinkle with chocolate vermicelli or some chocolate shards that you can scrape with a knife from a chocolate bar (I used both)
How fast was that to make? Doesn’t get any faster! I love it!
