We used an espresso chip ice cream to accentuate the espresso, but any complimenting flavor would work well. The espresso does not completely melt the ice cream, but merely softens it into a velvety texture as the flavors combine. For an adult twist, an additional shot of Baileys transforms the dessert into a delicious take on Irish coffee.
