“Everyone loves hot fudge sundaes. The sweetened almond cream is divine, I would suggest using the Amaretto! And since Amaretto is liquid love... this recipe is perfect for your valentine! You can substitute gelato for ice cream. Recipe adapted from the Food Network.”

  • 13 cup freshly brewed espresso
