Dalgona Coffee 4 ways

You may have noticed that a new trend took the world by storm over the past 6 weeks; the Dalgona Coffee or the Whipped Coffee, which is a creamy Korean coffee. It first took off on the social media platform TikTok and I’ve been hooked ever since! I started to wonder what other variations of the Dalgona Coffee I could make. What better way to spend my quarantine time! Read on for Dalgona Coffee 4 ways.

The Original Dalgona Coffee

Can anything really ever beat the original? If the re-makes of Psycho and Bewitched are anything to go by, then the answer is a resounding No, however, in this case, I think all the variations I’ve tried are just as good, if not even better!

Dalgona Coffee

Ingredients:

– 2 tbsp instant coffee

– 2 tbsp sugar

– 2 tbsp hot water

– Milk

– Ice cubes

Recipe:

– Mix the instant coffee, sugar and water in a bowl. Stir briefly to mix properly.

– Using an electric mixer or a whisk, get the mixture nice and thick. If you have a Nespresso frother, I’ve found that works really well for thickening it up.

– Once the mix is nice and thick, add it to your glass of ice and milk.

It not only looks amazing, but tastes delicious.

Baileys Dalgona Coffee

This twist on the Dalgona coffee is really good, perfect when you want that hit of coffee but also it’s been a long work day!

Recipe:

– Follow the exact same steps as above, but add some baileys to your milk. Don’t ask me for measurements, I free pour till it feels right!

– Add some whipped cream and chocolate chunks on top and enjoy!

Irish Dalgona Espresso Martini

I’m very proud of this invention, it’s decadent yet light and the perfect after dinner treat!

Ingredients:

– 2 tbsp instant coffee

– 2 tbsp sugar

– 2 tbsp hot water

– 2 tbsp Irish whiskey

– 2 tbsp Baileys

– chocolate shavings

Recipe:

– Add the whiskey and baileys along with some ice cubes to a blender, or cocktail shaker. Blend until the ice has broken down.

– Add mix to your Martini glass.

– Make the Dalgona coffee, as per the recipe above (The Original Dalgona Coffee).

– Add dalgona mix to Martini glass, pouring it carefully over the whiskey and baileys.

– Put some chocolate shavings on top (my chocolate of choice is Cadbury’s Dairy Milk)

Enjoy 🙂

Dalgona Coffee Chocolate Mousse

This mousse is absolutely divine. It’s gooey, it’s chocolatey, but with a hit of coffee, just what a dessert should be. I actually recommend making this a day ahead of time, as it tastes even better having been in the fridge overnight.

Ingredients:

– 2 tbsp instant coffee

– 2 tbsp sugar

– 2 tbsp hot water

– 200g chocolate

– 1/2 cup of heavy cream (or table cream)

– 1 cup of whipped heavy cream

– some extra whipped cream for topping

– chocolate shavings

Recipe:

– Roughly chop the 200g of chocolate

– Add the 1/2 cup of heavy cream to a microwave safe bowl, mix in the chocolate

– Heat the cream and chocolate for 1 minute in the microwave (time may vary based on your microwave, check it regularly as you don’t want the chocolate to burn).

– Stir the cream and chocolate to mix it and then set aside to cool down

– Now make your dalgona coffee mix (using the instant coffee, sugar, hot water, see Original Dalgona Coffee for steps)

– Ensuring your 1 cup of cream is whipped enough (it should be forming stiff peaks), gently fold it into the chocolate and cream mix you prepared earlier. Tip: I actually used whipped cream from a can and it worked out, so if you’re feeling lazy do this!

– Add the mousse mix to your serving glasses. Here you can do mousse, dalgona mix, followed by more mousse to really get the dalgona flavour to permeate throughout the mousse, or you can add the dalgona mix to the top

– Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, however, it really tastes better if you leave it in the fridge overnight

– Serve with whipped cream on top, along with some chocolate shavings.

Enjoy 🙂
