How to make dalgona coffee


Named after a Korean toffee candy, dalgona coffee has taken the internet by storm as many try to recreate the recipe and share their results. Here is a video on how to make it by hand along with some tips for the process.

1. Use a hand mixer!!

Don’t make the mistake I did and try to mix it by hand- it takes forever. Using a hand mixer will speed up the process and make it foamier, which is what you want.

2. You can adjust the recipe

Use the same amount of coffee powder and hot water, but you can add more sugar if needed. You can also substitute milk with almond or soy milk.

3. Make sure the water is hot

I heated up the water in my microwave but it cooled down before I started making the coffee. Hot water helps the coffee and sugar dissolve to create a homogenous, or uniform,  mixture.

4. Use enough of each ingredient

I tried using one teaspoon of coffee powder, sugar, and hot water and ended up with enough coffee for an ant. For a single serving, use at least two tablespoons of coffee powder and water.
