affogato... italian for OMG!!!

      Have you heard the term, affogato? If you love coffee, chocolate and ice cream, this is something you're going to want to make... probably, right now. As you're reading.

     Here is the wikipedia definition: An affogato (Italian, drowned) is a coffee-based beverage or dessert. It usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso. Some variations also include a shot of liqueur.
     I made a chocolate affogato for dessert. Start with a scoop of chocolate ice cream in a pretty glass. Pour a shot of hot espresso over. 
     A good ratio is one shot per scoop of ice cream. I shaved a bit of dark chocolate with sea salt over... just to finish it off.
 Then, I snapped a few pictures.
Then, I gobbled up every last bit;)
