Easy Mocha Affogato- Italian Ice Cream Dessert (Throwback Thursdays)

Photo circa 2011
August 2011 I wrote: Scooping out some ice cream for dessert is probably one of the quickest ways to satisfy your sweet tooth after a meal.  Well, why not take it up a notch with this fun Italian take of a coffee/ice cream dessert.  It's too simple to even call it a recipe because it's basically some hot espresso or strong coffee poured over some vanilla ice cream.  I decided to put my own twist by making it mocha flavored by mixing chocolate and coffee together. Garnish with a few Pirouline wafer cookies and you have yourself a  a really simple dessert that is fancy enough to serve for guests.

Note: Throwback Thursday is a new series where I take some of my original posts here on  Curry and Comfort and redo them so I can take better photos


Vanilla Ice Cream
1/2 a cup of boiling hot water
1 Tbs of Instant Coffee ( I used Nescafe)
2 Tbs of Chocolate Syrup (I used Nesquik brand)

Stir the instant coffee and chocolate syrup into the hot water.  Pour over scoops of ice cream when ready to serve.  Top with some wafer cookies or cookies and Enjoy.
