This is what comes from coffee ice cream and heath bar cookies . . . coffee toffee ice cream bars! There’s just something about coffee and toffee that’s meant to go together. From now on whenever I make coffee ice cream I will likely be tempted to make cookies so that I can have this sinfully delicious treat. These are really fun to eat and great for a party of friends or family.

One of my favorite flavors of ice cream is coffee, but I never thought I’d be able to recreate the taste like they make at an ice cream parlor. This recipe is about as good as it gets and comes from “The Perfect Scoop” by David Lebovitz. It creates a rich creamy ice cream with the flavor of coffee, but not too overpowering. It’s a bit on the sweet side and I might cut back on the sugar just for my own preference. You also have the option to use decaffeinated beans which I would probably use next batch. I wasn’t thinking about it at the time and used caffeinated beans but found that having a bowl in the evening can make for some fitful sleep. Oh well, it was worth it!
