“I served this easy frozen dessert when a friend came to lunch during a heat wave. With coffee as the starring ingredient, it was a cool treat on a scorcher of a day.” —Sally Sibthorpe, Shelby Township, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 10, 2011

I made this dessert for my husband a while back and he really liked it (he puts hazelnut creamer in his morning coffee, so it was a natural for him). The recipe worked great just as printed, and was yummy without any cookies to accompany it. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Sally!
