  • 200ml (about 1 mug) freshly-made strong coffee

Method

  1. Leave the ice cream out of the freezer for 5 mins to soften, then tip into a bowl. Meanwhile, put six of the biscotti into a freezer bag and lightly crush with a rolling pin, fold into the ice cream, then return to the freezer.

  2. Break the chocolate into a pan or microwaveable bowl, add the brandy and heat gently until melted or microwave on High for 30 secs. Stir (it will thicken), then pour in the hot coffee and carry on stirring until smooth.

  3. Scoop the ice cream into heatproof glasses or bowls, then pour the mocha over. Serve straight away with the remaining biscotti.

We had this tonight and we definitely had a lot of fun making it! I don't make desserts very often so am quite inexperienced, and I melted the chocolate first, then added the alcohol and the whole thing immediately turned into a lump! I guess it must have been the sudden temperature change. I started again putting in the chocolate and alcohol together and it worked much better that time. It was really really tasty, and, because we didn't have any brandy we used Disaronno, which I think is a bit like Amaretti and it was delicious. So we agreed to try and make it again with brandy next time to do the recipe justice, not that we need an excuse to make it again...!

A perfect, fuss-free dinner-party treat, mostly made in advance, and with a great combination of hot/cold; bitter/sweet; crunchy/smooth.
Absolutely all our friends who have tried it have raved about it, and asked for more!

I used less coffee and it was still quite runny. I have an issue with the 5 minutes it apparently takes. It took me longer than that just to fold the biscuits into the ice cream! It was, however, delicious and I will make it again.

I found there was too much coffee in the recipe so mine turned out a bit runny!
