Robust iced coffee, poured over coffee ice cream and topped with a decadent white chocolate mascarpone cream. Finish with milk chocolate sprinkled on top and you have a cool, dreamy, tiramisu-inspired dessert to savor.
So this happened the other day. A luscious, delicious, creamy coffee dessert/drink/mug-of-heaven. If you love tiramisu or sweet desserts with coffee flavors, you will want to try this recipe for certain. It’s kinda like a float, since it is coffee poured over ice cream. But the white chocolate cream, with rich mascarpone and whipped cream, are the ultimate divinity on top. Easy to make, pretty to look at, and such a treat to enjoy.
The job: Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend. The task: make something cool with it. This new Folgers is a medium-dark roast, so it starts smooth but finishes bold. So it holds up perfectly even when you add stuff, like a couple scoops of ice cream and a ladle of creamy cream. This also makes it a great choice for French press, cold brew, and brew over ice. Point is, if you want to do something fun with coffee like this dessert, Breakfast Blend ain’t gonna cut it. You need to go for something stronger.
So what I did here is easy. I just brewed the coffee and stuck it in the fridge to chill after. Then I melted some white chocolate and whipped it into some mascarpone. Then I folded in whipped cream into that to make the white chocolate cream of my dreams (that sounds ridiculous, I know. But I don’t care). Then I just put it all together: ice cream, coffee, white chocolate cream, and topped with grated milk chocolate.
The result was a grown-up, DELICIOUS, tiramisu-ish dessert. If you are a regular here, you know I do not do desserts often. Truth be told, I just don’t have a sweet tooth. But there is something about COFFEE in a dessert, isn’t there? It makes even a usually-goes-for-savory person like me SWOON. 😍
So, that’s it folks! A lovely treat to share with coffee, chocolate, and cream. One part ice cream float and one part exquisite Italian dessert for a fun new java.
