Create the Prettiest Dessert Bar and Chilled Affogatos


I am just loving sharing Holiday Dessert ideas {see more here} so today I created a classic coffee dessert with a Miami twist. I am taking the popular affogato drink – a mixture of ice cream and coffee – and giving it an extra cool new ring. In Miami we want to cool down {even in December} so I took my china tea cups {similar} and filled them with vanilla frozen yogurt to start. Next up, cold Starbucks Double Shot Espresso & Cream on top {the classic recipe calls for hot espresso or a dark brew}. For a little extra, I topped the finished cup with chopped Lindt chocolates in peppermint flavor!! I love that not rather than a drink, it become a delicious dessert! (Not a fan of espresso? Equally as yummy is the cold Starbucks Mocha Frappucinos on top)! Serve alongside a dessert tray of cheese {here I did Brie with candied walnuts on top}, strawberries, seedless red grapes, and enjoy!
