This dulce de leche recipe from Warm Vanilla Sugar is one part Argentinian custard, one part seasonal squash, one part ice cream and one part coffee. This epic, fall-themed mashup is a dulce de leche pumpkin affogato. This is the perfect combination of pumpkin ice cream and a strong espresso. Traditionally affogato consists of a scoop of vanilla ice cream and shot of hot espresso, but this version integrates an autumnal ice cream flavor, plus a scoop of dulce de leche.

To recreate this caffeinated dulce de leche recipe, you'll need pure pumpkin puree, cream cheese, liquid honey, ground cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract among other ingredients. For an adult boozy version, you can also add some bourbon.
