Cooking with Kaylie: Coffee Lover's Dessert

This week’s recipe has a simplistic name that called out to me: Ingredients

  • In a saucepan, combine marshmallows and coffee over low heat
  • Melt, stirring frequently
  • Remove from heat and cool to room temperature
  • Fold in whipped cream
  • Spoon into dishes and chill before serving
Short and sweet, right? I made the original and two variations: chocolate chip and coconut*. All of them were rich, sweet and had a firm mousse-like texture. The original is like a dessert version of taking your coffee with (a lot of) sugar and cream, while the coconut version was like a sweet latte drink. As for the chocolate chip? Well, the alternating textures just didn’t work well in this recipe. If you have a massive sweet tooth, this one’s for you! * To make the variations, add Monin coconut syrup before removing the marshmallow and coffee mixture from heat or fold in chocolate chips with the whipped cream.
