Best S’mores Latte Recipe: With Toasted Marshmallows

I think s’mores are one of those things that most people grow up with. It is a beloved around campfires and with good reason. It is amazing.

This s’mores latte is like a throwback to all the late-night laughs around the campfire enjoying these sweet delights.

Ingredients for a S’mores Latte

  1. Ground coffee
  2. ¾ cup milk of choice
  3. ½ tsp toasted marshmallow syrup
  4. ½ tsp mocha syrup
  5. 3 marshmallows (optional)
  6. A cracker/or a few small ones (optional)

What Coffee is Best to Use?

For a medium roast I always recommend Starbucks’s Pike Place roast. If you prefer a dark roast Starbucks’s Caffè Verona coffee beans.

Do I Need an Espresso Machine?

Nope, you can totally make this latte without a fancy coffee machine. Both a Moka pot as well as an AeroPress will do the job well with their espresso-like coffee.

You can also try instant espresso, such as Nescafé’s instant espresso.

Just don’t go for regular coffee such as those made with a French press or drip coffee machine. It is true that it gives you strong coffee, but it’s not as concentrated as espresso. This means that using such brewed coffee will not give you the same results as espresso or espresso-like coffee.

What Type of Milk to Use

Whole milk will give you a creamy drink and the higher fat content helps the foam to last longer. However, it does add a few extra calories to your drink. Both skim milk as well as low-fat milk will work well too.

Dairy Alternatives

You can also go for a plant-based milk such as oat milk, almond milk, or soy milk. Look out for the barista versions. They froth better than the normal ones.

How to Froth the Milk Without a Steam Wand

If you don’t have an espresso machine with a steam wand, it is not. a problem either. Simply use a French press, handheld milk frother or mason jar.

My favorite of these methods is a French press because they are fairly cheap and most coffee lovers already have one at home.

Also, it is really easy to froth milk in them. You simply pop it in the microwave for a minute and then “plunge” vigorously for about 15-20 seconds.

How to Toast the Marshmallows

Okay, so most people use a culinary torch to toast the marshmallows, but I don’t think that is really something that most people just have lying around. Well, at least, I don’t.

In any case, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make those tasty treats. If you have a gas stove, you can do it using that, but for some reason I don’t like that. I prefer using a candle.

Maybe it’s just because that’s how we used to do it when I was a child. You know, kind of reliving a happy childhood memory or whatever.

Basically, all you have to do is put the marshmallow on a skewer or even a fork like I did. Then you hold it over the flame until you are happy with the level of toasted…

Variations on a S’mores Latte

S’mores Mocha Latte

Well, technically, a s’mores latte is already a mocha. However, you can make it more chocolatey by adding another ½ tablespoon of mocha sauce.

You can also leave out the toasted marshmallow syrup altogether. You still have the toasted marshmallows on top. So, technically it is still related to a s’more that way.

Iced S’mores Latte

If you live in a place where Christmas falls in the summer, you can always try this latte as an iced latte.

Simply add coffee ice cubes (normal ones will water down your drink) to the espresso-syrup mixture. Also, froth cold milk. Don’t steam or heat it in another way. Then add the toppings.
