Marshmallows
10 g
Milk
150 ml
Instant coffee
1 teaspoon
Optional (toppings)
Marshmallows
2 small

Steps

1. Rip up the marshmallows and put in a mug.
2. Add enough milk (from the total amount) to cover the marshmallows.

4. Take the mug out and mix well to dissolve the marshmallows. Don't worry if they don't dissolve totally since the mug will be heated again.
5. Add the instant coffee, and mix very very well to make it foamy.
6. Add the rest of the milk to the mug, and mix mix mix again. Microwave again using the "milk warming" program.
7. Mix it very well again after reheating, and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

Marshmallows can be used to make all sorts of treats. I wanted to use them in a hot drink, but just adding them on top was too mundane...so I wondered what it would be like if I melted marshmallows?
I wondered if I could put this foaminess to use, and came up with this recipe.
