Diced! Day of Eating Contest: Becky – Chocolate Pistachio Coffee Icecreamie

The latest Diced! cooking contest by The Ranting Chef is here. In this competition, contestants make four dishes: a breakfast/brunch, lunch, dinner and dessert. After each dish, I will put up a poll for you to vote for your favorite. Votes for the breakfast/brunch post are worth one point apiece, lunch are worth two points, dinner votes are worth three points and dessert posts are worth five. 

Today we have a Dessert entry from Becky who blogs over at BubblyBEE. Check out the blog and the post below. Here’s Becky…


Icecreamie - Featured Size

Affogato is an Italian iced coffee dessert that is super simple to make. This fabulous dessert combines my husband and my favorite ice cream flavors:  coffee ice cream (hubby’s favorite) and pistachio and chocolate (my favorites). It is the perfect summer dessert when it is so hot ~ you don’t have to turn on the oven to create this yummy treat! Somehow the name “Affogato” just doesn’t roll off my tongue, but I love ice cream rolling onto my tongue so I’ve taken poetic license and renamed my “Affogato” ~ “Icecreamie”!

Chocolate Pistachio Coffee Icecreamie

Makes 2 servings

Place 2 ice cream bowls and 2 dessert spoons in the freezer to chill.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter and 1/4 cup 62% cacao chocolate chunks in the microwave in a small bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.

Place 1 scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream in each ice cream bowl.  Pour 1/2 of the melted chocolate over each scoop of ice cream. Pour 1/4 cup coffee (espresso is perfect  but Colombian coffee also tastes very good in this recipe) over each serving of ice cream. Top with chopped pistachios. Garnish with a fresh strawberry.

Cheers to a fun day of dining!  Now “BubblyBEE” the cook will have some bubbly!

Pannier Champagne

Nice consistent tiny bubbles, notes of lemon and just enough graphite and brioche undertones to make this bubbly interesting!
