Coffee ice cream with Kahlua and walnuts
 
This is one of my favorite desserts and it's good all year round.
 
Ingredients:
 
Coffee ice cream
Roughly chopped walnuts
Kahlua (if you want to substitute caramel sauce, you can)
Whipped cream
 
Just spoon coffee ice cream into parfait glasses or dessert dishes and top with walnuts. Pour some Kahlua on top and then add whipped cream. Perfect for one of those days when it's really too hot to cook anything! Enjoy...
