Although the past couple of months have felt like years, we have finally made it to the unofficial start of Summer. Congratulations! Last night The Blind Pig Family watched Blind Piglet #2 graduate from high school in a semi-graduation made for the era of social distancing. With some closure on the school year, we are ready to feel the good vibes of summer and social distance ourselves from constantly thinking about COVID.
If you are bringing on those good vibes at the lake or beach this weekend or you are hanging out in your own backyard, we have a delicious and extremely easy dessert you can make.
To make the Toffee Surprise you need only three ingredients: your favorite vanilla ice cream, Heath toffee bits, and Caffe’ Borghetti Espresso Liqueur. We made our dessert with Blue Bell’s Vanilla Bean ice cream, and you can find the Heath Toffee bits on the baking aisle of your grocery store. If you can’t find the toffee bits, you improvise by purchasing Heath bars and breaking them into tiny bits.
Place 2-3 scoops of vanilla ice cream into individual serving bowls or glasses. Sprinkle with the toffee bits. Don’t be afraid to be generous with the sprinkling! Finally drizzle Caffe’ Borghetti over the top of the toffee bits and ice cream. Then you are ready to serve! If you want to make your dessert ahead of time, you can prep the desserts and place in the freezer until ready to serve. The Borghetti will solidify some, but it still has a great flavor and appeal!
The combo of toffee and coffee make this dessert a super yummy treat! Try Toffee Surprise this weekend and let us know what you think!
