Salted Caramel Affogato
After four years in DC, I am still getting used to the 60-70˚F temperatures during December here in Southern California. This Salted Caramel Affogato is quite the decadent treat to enjoy during the still warm winter days. Freshly prepared espresso is flavored with a splash of Torani Salted Caramel Syrup, poured over vanilla gelato, and topped with a drizzle of salted caramel sauce (I am particularly fond of this Vanilla Bean Caramel Sauce).
I served the Salted Caramel Affogato in these Double Wall Irish Coffee Glasses from JoyJolt. I love the double wall design and the use of insulated borosilicate-glass to make the cups more resistant to temperature changes.
After I finished taking the photos, Claire said it was missing something and added a pinch of this Snow Queen Sprinkles Mix from Sweets & Treats. It definitely did make the Affogato more festive for the season!
