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 unique feature of Dalgona Coffee is the fact that the coffee foams or in this case “whips.” Not only that, but the coffee can stay whipped and maintain its shape, unlike most foam based coffees that lose their bubbles after a few minutes. The reason Dalgona Coffee can achieve that “whipped” effect comes from the combined properties in instant coffee and sugar. Read more about the science behind dalgona coffee here.

- 2 tbsp brown sugar

In another bowl, using a hand mixer, whip the melted marshmallows, sugar, instant coffee and water until it thickens and becomes one creamy consistent mixture.
Fill 2 clear mugs with ice and milk, leaving enough space for the mixture.
Add the creamy mixture on top of each mug.
Using a metal skewer (or a long fork, one at a time in that case), toast 6 marshmallows by holding them over the heat turning occasionally, until the marshmallows puff and turn golden brown.
Top each mug with 3 toasted marshmallows, cookie crumbles and chocolate syrup. Enjoy!
