A nutty shortbread crust is topped with mocha whipped cream and frozen in this easy dessert.
INGREDIENTS (for 9 servings):
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
- 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
- 1/2 cup butter, chilled
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup chopped mixed nuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Combine cream, instant coffee and chocolate syrup in a large bowl and place in refrigerator.
In a mixing bowl, cut butter into flour until mixture resembles large crumbs. Stir in nuts and press into a 9x9 inch baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Let cool completely.
Beat chilled cream mixture with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Spread over cooled crust, cover and freeze 4 hours, until firm.
