Potluck with a twist (NC) - Nothing is more enjoyable during the holidays than spending time with family and friends. And why not do it over dessert? For a twist on a dinner party, consider hosting a dessert party - not only is it less stress than a three course meal, but you can theme it any way you'd like. Better yet, have your guests bring their favourites for a delicious dessert potluck. Here is a classy treat made with the latest flavour innovation from Häagen-Dazs, new Vanilla Caramel Latte ice cream. Enjoyed exclusively in Canada, Vanilla Caramel Latte is well paired with coffee, so serve this simple yet sophisticated dessert with a cappuccino topped with lots of foam.

"Affogato-style" refers to the act of topping a drink or dessert with espresso.


  • Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Caramel Latte Ice Cream
  • Espresso or Strong Coffee
  • Cookies
  • Mint


Scoop ice cream into a small coffee cup.

Pour a few spoonfuls of coffee over ice cream.

Garnish with mint and cookies.

Heading to a potluck? Bring along the fixings for this dessert, and a gourmet ice cream scoop or holiday ornament for your host.
