Chocolate Chip Affogato

This classic Italian dessert is one of my favorites.  So simple and easy to put together, yet always a big hit at the dinner table.  An affogato is simply cold ice cream served with a shot of warm espresso poured over top; the ice cream slightly melts into the rich coffee which makes for a creamy, dreamy coffee-flavored confection.  I used vanilla ice cream topped with semi-sweet chocolate chips for this version, but feel free to experiment with chocolate chip ice cream, chocolate ice cream or even coffee ice cream for a double-dose of rich coffee flavor.
