Affogato Al Ciocolato Recipe

An Italian iced hot chocolate drink…

This recipe originates in Italy, hence the name. Creamy and delicious, this thick, milkshake-like drink will quickly become a favourite with children and adults alike.

Makes: 2 glasses


1 litre tub of vanilla Ice Cream
6 tbsp Miles Heavenly Hot Chocolate
2 tbsp white sugar 
500ml of cold milk 
Whipped cream 


  • Pour the milk into a saucepan and gently heat.
  • Add the Heavenly Hot Chocolate powder to the milk and stir in until it has fully dissolved and the milk has thickened (For a thicker hot chocolate add an extra 2 tbsp of chocolate powder).
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and leave it to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Take a tall glass and add scoops of vanilla ice cream until it has almost filled the top of the glass – we’ve used 5 small scoops per glass. 
  • Pour the hot chocolate over the ice cream.
  • Top the glass with whipped cream and a dusting of chocolate powder, chocolate sauce or both. Serve immediately.
