Affogatos are one of our favorite, easy entertaining desserts! They literally consist of just a few ingredients with no baking required! We gave the traditional Affogato recipe our own twist and used Dunkin’ Donuts Pumpkin Spice coffee and Dunkin’ Dark coffee to make a custom brewed coffee to pour over 3 yummy scoops of vanilla bean ice cream!

We loved the combo of using a rich dark coffee and then blending it with a fall pumpkin flavor. The coffee aromas filled the house with the scent of fall, which is so lovely this time of year. After pouring the coffee over the ice cream, we topped our Affogato with caramel sauce and pumpkin pie spice creating the most perfect fall coffee dessert!

How to Make an Affogatto

To make an affogato, brew 10 cups of your favorite coffee. Pour over about 1/2 cup over 3 scoops of vanilla bean or pumpkin spice ice cream and top with caramel and pumpkin pie spice. It’s SO good, you have to try this affogato recipe!

You can also pour a shot of espresso over the ice cream too. This is the traditional way of making an Affogato.

How do you eat affogatto?

Serve Affogato in a glass with a spoon. You eat it just like you would ice cream. You can also add a little straw with the spoon to sip the coffee.

It’s so delicious when the coffee melts the ice cream and then you drizzle caramel over the top. Such a simple dessert, but feels so sophisticated.
