Most of us don’t try to liven things up at home; we are stuck in a routine. However, adding one new unique item to the menu to perk you up may help you feel happier throughout the week. Try these new recipes with your hot and cold coffee.

Hot Marshmallow Coffee

Hot coffee is a lifesaver in fall and winter, and this cozy coffee drink is a killer way to ward off the chills. This marshmallow coffee drink is airy, fluffy, and so tasty that nothing should stop you from trying this drink at least once. 

What do you need?

  • Marshmallows or marshmallow fluff
  • Coffee creamer (not necessary but delicious)
  • Cinnamon or pumpkin spice powder 

That’s it! It only takes an extra few minutes to create a fantastic latte-like coffee at home. 

The marshmallow will melt nice and smooth over the hot coffee, giving it a creamy latte-like texture. Then you can add the sauce or garnish on the top of the foam. It is an Instagram-worthy drink that will be a great way to kick off the morning.

S’mores Iced Coffee

If you have an extra ten minutes, this is a recipe you have to try. Hot coffee will melt the marshmallows, but iced coffee will keep them firm. They will soak up the coffee and be a tasty treat when you suck down every ounce of coffee. 

There is no doubt that you will fall in love with this s’mores iced coffee drink. It’s a fun and flirty drink that is great in the summer, fall, or all year long. 

What do you need?

  • Dark chocolate syrup
  • Crushed graham crackers
  • Marshmallow
  • Cinnamon spice 

The easiest way to make this drink is to brew a pot of coffee the night before, dump it in a pitcher, and put it in the fridge. You will wake up with iced coffee. This is an excellent trick if you want to feel better prepared in the morning.

Unfortunately, most of us don’t have our lives together, so we need coffee ASAP in the morning. Don’t worry; we get it. Instead of having iced coffee ready to go, here is what you can do. 

Pour the chocolate sauce on the rim of your glass and add graham crackers on top of that; think S’mores margarita. Then pour about one tablespoon (or more) of extra syrup inside and add ice cubes. 

Pour the hot coffee on top of the ice cubes, and remember, you can always add more ice cubes. 

If you want a smidge of creamer, you can add it on top of the coffee. After that, add your marshmallows and extra graham crackers. If you choose to add cinnamon or cinnamon sugar, add it last!

Tips to Keep in Mind

Buy marshmallow-flavored coffee creamer for an extra bit of marshmallow flavor. If you want to add a little kick to your s’mores drink, you can use a culinary light to toast your marshmallows. 

It won’t burn your marshmallows, but it will char them as a campfire would. It might give you that extra s’mores vibe you’ve been craving.
