Dalgona Mocha Coffee

Dalgona Mocha Coffee is a luscious twist on the viral dalgona coffee trend. Instead of just whipping instant coffee, this variant incorporates cocoa powder and heavy cream to create a velvety chocolate coffee foam.

This whipped mixture is then layered over your choice of milk, making it an elevated version of your traditional iced mocha latte. With its blend of rich coffee and chocolate flavors, it’s a drink that combines the best of both worlds for coffee and chocolate aficionados alike.
