I have something you must do immediately. It requires an ice cream maker of some variety. Got one? Good. Now collect:

* 1/4 cup hot espresso
* 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
* 1 cup half-and-half
* 1 cup heavy cream
* 6 oz frozen raspberries, half thawed

Dissolve cocoa and sugar in espresso. Let mixture cool. Stir in vanilla, half-and-half, heavy cream, and syrup from thawed raspberries. Place mix into ice cream maker and freeze, according to maker's directions. If you are lucky enough to have a husband who asked for an ice cream attachment for your brand new KitchenAid mixer for his birthday, this means put it all into the frozen bowl and mix for 18 minutes. Add the raspberries and mix for three minutes. Scrape the soft serve into a bowl and freeze until it reaches the desired consistency. Taste, preferably in secret away from anyone who might want to share. Feel free to thank me if you can bring yourself to take the spoon out of your mouth long enough.
