Why this Recipe Works
Ever since I discovered how to make coffee creamer at home, I hardly ever reach for the store bought stuff. Homemade not only tastes better, it’s so much fun to try out new flavors.
- Homemade coffee creamer is quick and easy to make.
- It adds instant flavor to your coffee with just one step.
- Only four ingredients needed.
- Tastes delicious in hot or iced coffee.
You only need four simple ingredients for this recipe.
- Sweetened Condensed Milk. This handy canned milk is the cream and the sugar all in one.
- Marshmallow creme. Pick up a jar of this ingredient (also known as “fluff”) and you’ll be ready to make a batch of Chocolate Fudge too!
- Milk. I used skim milk. Whole, nonfat or nondairy milk will work just as well.
- Chocolate syrup. A bottle of your favorite ice cream syrup is perfect in Chocolate Marshmallow Coffee Creamer. Or try our homemade chocolate syrup recipe!
Tips and Tricks
- Heat the ingredients on low. The warming step melts the marshmallow fluff and helps everything incorporate. You don’t want to bring it to a boil.
- Stir constantly. While heating, keep gently stirring until the mixture is smooth.
- Store in the fridge. I keep mine in a mason jar with a lid.
- Shake before adding to coffee. The ingredients will naturally separate a bit as the creamer settles. Just give them a shake to recombine before adding to coffee.
- Add to coffee to taste. Chocolate Marshmallow Coffee Creamer is on the sweet side. Add a little to your coffee at a time until you reach your desired creamy sweetness!
- Add mini marshmallows . A handful of marshmallows in your creamer-doused coffee makes it even more fun to sip.
- Hot Cocoa. Add to homemade hot chocolate for a sweet twist.
Use the expiration date on the milk you use as a guide. The fresher the milk, the longer the creamer will stay good. Mine usually keeps for about 7 days.
Yes, this coffee creamer would be wonderful added to espresso.
You could add 1/4 cup of mini marshmallows to the creamer while heating instead. The creamer may not be as smooth as it is when using marshmallow creme.
