- 4 brownies or pound cake slices
- 1 pint coffee ice cream
- 1 cup prepared hot fudge sauce
- 2 tablespoons dark roast coffee beans
- 1/4 cup strong coffee
- 1/2 cup salted Spanish peanuts (the small peanuts with skins)
Line dessert bowls with brownie squares or pound cake. Set coffee ice cream out to soften a bit. Heat hot fudge sauce over low heat or in the microwave. Place dark-roast coffee beans in a heavy duty plastic food storage bag and crush them with a small heavy skillet or mallet. If you have a coffee grinder, grind the beans on coarsest setting. Add beans to sauce with 1/4 cup (2 ounces), strong coffee. Scoop coffee ice cream on cake or brownies. Top with coffee fudge sauce and salted nuts and serve. WOW!
