Affogato is an Italian coffee-based dessert.  Most of the time it is made with vanilla ice cream or gelato but I took it one step forward and made it with Salted Caramel Gelato and it was AWESOME! A perfect drink to serve as a dessert.

Salted Caramel Affogato is it a drink or dessert? and it only takes two ingredients.

 Do you drink coffee in the summer? Hot coffee?  Well if you think you can't, then putting some ice cream or gelato in your coffee cools it down and makes it taste so good.. And the best part it is easy to make and here is how....

1-2 scoop Salted Caramel Gelato
2 shots espresso
1 tbsp caramel syrup (optional)

Brew 2 shots of espresso or extra strong coffee
Add caramel syrup to espresso
In cup, add Salted Caramel Gelato
Pour espresso over gelato
Stir slightly
