Notes

Notes // Tips: See post above for liqueur variation ideas, such as swapping hazelnut for Chambord or Sambuca.

Leftovers & Storage: Because the point of an affogato is to pour hot espresso over cold ice cream, this Hazelnut Liqueur Affogato recipe is best when made immediately before serving. However, it only takes five minutes to prepare so it is a great choice when pressed for time.

Nutrition: This affogato recipe contains full fat dairy gelato, which means a fair amount of saturated fat and sugar. However, with all things in life, balance and moderation is key and you should enjoy it as a part of your overall balanced diet.

Make it vegan: Use coconut or another plant-based ice cream for a vegan treat.
