S’mores Affogato with Marshmallow Whipped Cream


To say that I was excited to post this s’mores affogato recipe would be quite the understatement. My obsession with coffee runs deep, and my obsession with ice cream runs even deeper. I remember the first time Zach made me an affogato. That was it. I was done for. Zach is quite the barista. I’d call myself pretty lucky to have a latte or cappuccino waiting for me every morning when I wake up, since my skills with an espresso machine are non-existent and I usually settle for French press (if you can call that settling – I don’t know). We started brainstorming, and thought to ourselves, “have we ever seen a s’mores affogato?” The answer was no, and the result … well it was just magnificent.

Now, you all probably already know that I’m not the tutorial/step-by-step type. I blame my laziness. I can’t seem to get photos of the process, and when I do get photos they are just god awful. This s’mores affogato recipe on the other hand was a super simple one to photograph, so I thought I’d give it a shot! I intended that pun. Muahaha.

First things first, scoop the ice cream into two mugs (4 ounces each). I know…so tough. I’m really outdoing myself here.

I chose a mocha, almond, fudge ice cream. Dreyer’s® makes a spectacular one if you are looking for specifics.

Second, comes the pouring of the espresso part. I used French press for this recipe because I wanted a shot of a French press in this photo, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love French press on a normal basis. It’s my go-to when Zach isn’t around to make me a latte. You may use drip coffee. It just won’t be as strong as it would be if it came from a French press or espresso machine (or other espresso making device).

Pour a 1/2 cup of coffee into each mug, and just watch the steam. It’s just so pretty.

Oh, coffee. How I adore you so.

Third, dollop on your marshmallow whipped cream. It’s a simple recipe (recipe is below). Heavy whipping cream and a dash of confectioner’s sugar is whipped to soft peaks and then marshmallows are folded in.


Yeah, I know.

Lastly, sprinkle on that crunch. Graham cracker crumbs make for the perfect garnish. I say 2 tablespoons in the recipe (1 tablespoon per serving), but I’m pretty sure the last time I made this recipe I dumped 1/4 cup.

I’m not sad about this.

  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer, with whisk attachment fixed, add the heavy whipping cream and the confectioner's sugar. Mix on medium-high speed until soft peaks form. Fold in the marshmallows and transfer to an airtight container. Store in the fridge until ready to use.
  2. Assemble your s'mores affogato by placing 4 ounces of ice cream into 2 coffee cups. Pour 1/2 cup of espresso into each cup and then dollop with the marshmallow whipped cream. Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs on top.

Cook Time = Coffee Brewing Time I used French Press for this recipe, but normally I would use espresso. If you are using drip coffee, you may need more than 1 cup as it's usually not as strong as French Press or espresso tend to be.
