Spanish Coffee and Fudge Sundaes


  • 4 brownies or pound cake slices

  • 1 pint coffee ice cream

  • 1 cup prepared hot fudge sauce

  • 2 tablespoons dark roast coffee beans

  • 1/4 cup strong coffee (2 ounces)

  • 1/2 cup salted Spanish peanuts (the small peanuts with skins)


Line dessert bowls with brownie squares or pound cake. Set coffee ice cream out to soften a bit. Heat hot fudge sauce over low heat or in the microwave. Place dark roast coffee beans in a heavy-duty sealable plastic bag and crush them with a heavy skillet or mallet. Alternatively, if you have a coffee grinder, grind the beans on coarsest setting. Add beans to hot fudge sauce along with 1/4 cup strong coffee. Scoop coffee ice cream on cake or brownies. Top with coffee fudge sauce and salted peanuts and serve. Yum-o!
