You didn’t think I was going to let Karen make a batch of her delicious spicy chai without stealing some for dessert, did you? These dirty chai affogatos are the perfect way to get that after-dinner caffeine fix, while simultaneously slurping down聽a scoop of cardamom ice cream. I promise, you’ll devour it so fast you won’t even have to worry about the ice cream melting. Embarrassing fact: after we photographed this post, I quickly ate all four affogatos! “What’s the harm in 4 little scoops of ice cream?” I thought. Only afterwards did I remember the four espresso shots I had just consumed. It was worth every waking late-night minute!! 馃檪
