Gelato Affogato | Drowning Ice Cream

This ridiculously easy dessert is always a favorite. I love to make homemade gelato, but I find a good-quality gelato like Talenti works best in this recipe because it is much harder than my homemade version, and it does not melt as quickly. The trick is to be sure to brew a proper strong espresso in an Italian espresso maker or press the button for a short shot if you have a machine.
