Dalgona Trending

Before I share the easy, step-by-step recipe with you, let me give you a little background on how Dalgona Coffee became an international Internet star.  This cold, whipped, coffee drink was made famous by a popular South Korean actor, Jung Il-woo. In January 2020, he appeared on a tv show, Stars’ Top Recipe at Fun-Staurant, and ordered a cold, whipped, coffee drink. The beverage reminded him of an old-fashioned, Korean street food snack made of caramelized sugar and baking soda called Dalgona. It was at that moment that Dalgona Coffee was born. Next, cue the millions of people stuck at home because of the coronavirus finding out about this newfangled beaten coffee. Dalgona Coffee becomes an overnight, viral sensation as millions around the world post pics of their concoctions!

If you want to try something different and easy to do, I recommend this! Five ingredients and five minutes, that’s all you need! It’s very similar to a Greek-style frappé and Beaten Coffee from India. And, did you know that the snack, Dalgona, is a relative of honeycomb toffee, sponge candy, sponge toffee, cinder toffee, seafoam, golden crunchers, and hokey pokey candy?

Variations on a Theme

You could also serve this over gently steamed milk instead of chilled milk. Try dairy-free almond or cashew milk to add a nutty dimension to the flavor. Garnish with cinnamon, cocoa powder, or a touch of pumpkin spice to add more depth to this milky, bittersweet coffee.

Do you think I should consider adding a Dalgona to our menu? I’d appreciate your input! It may be a wonderful complement to our ever-popular, frozen mochaccino. What do you think of the Dalgona? Will you try making it? Let us know in the comments below!
