In South Korea, a nostalgic iced coffee recipe becomes popular to share online as people stay home.

Combine instant coffee, sugar and 2 tablespoons hot water in a small mixing bowl.


Using a hand mixer, beat the mixture for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the color changes to golden brown and the mixture takes on a thick consistency.


Pour the milk into a tall glass with a few ice cubes in it and top with the mixture, using a spatula to coax it out of the bowl. Take a picture, post with #달고나커피, stir and enjoy.

You can make this recipe with hot chocolate mix instead of instant coffee. You can also YouTube it instead of Instagramming it.
