What is Dalgona Coffee?

Dalgona Coffee, 달고나커피 in Korean, is a whipped iced coffee drink made from equal parts of instant coffee granules, sugar and water. 

The reason Dalgona Coffee can achieve that “whipped” effect comes from the combined properties in instant coffee and sugar. You can make Dalgona Coffee and use it in various recipes, like S'more Dalgona, as a cake icing or muffins frosting!
