You only need a few ingredients to make this yummy Dalgona chocolate drink.

two glasses of dalgona chocolate.
  • Heavy cream
  • Nesquik 
  • Milk
  • Ice

Nesquik is a fun and popular chocolate drink by Nestlé. It’s a powder made from cocoa, sugar, and other flavors. They’ve got other flavor variations too, like strawberry and vanilla. 

Nesquik makes this dalgona chocolate recipe really easy to make because it’s already sweetened. Plus I love the taste! If you don’t feel like using Nesquik, I’ve heard the same results can be achieved by using unsweetened cocoa powder and sugar.


  • Dalgona Mocha: Add a teaspoon of instant coffee to the whipped chocolate mixture if you’re craving a caffeine kick. It will make a chocolate dalgona coffee, the perfect combo of your favorite coffee drink and chocolate milk!
  • Dairy-Free Chocolate Dalgona: For a dairy-free version, substitute the heavy cream with full-fat coconut cream or coconut milk and use your favorite dairy-free milk. To whip the coconut milk, follow these instructions for coconut whipped cream (without the sugar or vanilla).
  • Dalgona Strawberry Milk: Use strawberry-flavored Nesquik to make a pretty pink Strawberry drink!


Can I use egg whites to make this recipe?

It’s not recommended. While it’s possible to use egg whites to achieve a similar whipped texture (like a meringue), the taste will be different. Drinking raw egg whites can be risky unless they are pasteurized. Stick to heavy cream for the best Dalgona chocolate experience.

Can you make this drink without a mixer?

Yes, you can make dalgona chocolate without a mixer! You can use a whisk to vigorously whisk the heavy cream and Nesquik. Keep in mind that this method will require a lot more time and effort than using a hand mixer or electric whisk. A powerful milk frother works, too, but it doesn’t whip the creamy chocolate mixture into quite as thick of a consistency.

What is Dalgona coffee?

Dalgona coffee is a popular South Korean whipped coffee drink. It gained popularity as a TikTok trend during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. It consists of equal parts instant coffee, sugar, and hot water whipped together until they form a light, creamy foam. This whipped coffee mixture is then spooned over iced milk, creating a pretty and delicious iced latte drink.

What is the science behind dalgona coffee?

The science behind dalgona coffee lies in the process of creating the whipped coffee foam. When instant coffee, sugar, and hot water are combined and whipped together, air gets incorporated into the mixture, causing it to expand and create a stable foam. The instant coffee acts as a stabilizer, helping the foam maintain its structure. The sugar helps produce the foam, with a light and airy texture.

When making Dalgona chocolate (without coffee), whipped cream is used instead of water to achieve similar results.

    This is exactly what I was looking for. My kids saw me and my husband drinking Dalgona coffees and were jealous. We whipped these up and I may like the chocolate milk version even better! Nequik and cream is an amazing combo, who knew?! Thanks for the recipe, we’ll definitely be making it again.
