Here’s how to make the Biscoff iced latte that’s all over your TikTok right now
And yes, it is as easy as it looks
With summer fast approaching, our TikTok pages are filled up yet again with ice coffees. This year’s latest trend is the Biscoff iced coffee which I can’t seem to avoid. People on the page are saying it’s the best thing they’ve ever drank so I tried it to see if it really was as easy and delicious as everyone’s making out.
You don’t need to break the bank to give this trend a go, the base ingredients are just coffee, milk, Biscoff spread and ice. Perfect for the hot girl summer we’re all dreaming about. Here’s a step-by-step guide:
Step one: Make the coffee
If we’re being technical about it, you need one espresso for this drink. Am I a sleep deprived student whose still recovering from the hell that has been the past year at university? Yes I am. So naturally I made the coffee a little stronger than one espresso. I also used the instant coffee I have in my house – the TikTok’s I’ve seen use a variety of ways to make the coffee but just go with whatever you have and put in however much you like.
Step two: Melt the Biscoff spread
Honestly the most satisfying thing I’ve done in a while. Microwave the Biscoff spread for 10 to 30 seconds until it’s runny enough to fall off a spoon. The beauty of this is that you can take the lid off of the jar and the just put the jar in the microwave, because washing up is a little bit too much effort.
Put about a tablespoon and a half in the bottom of a glass – I eyeballed this totally and it still turned out tasting amazing. I also tried drizzling the spread along the edge of the glass just for the aesthetic which turned out cute but I’d recommend avoiding if you don’t like washing up.
Step 3: Mix the coffee into the glass
Pour your coffee into the glass over the spread and give them a good mix together. I used a milk frother but a spoon would work just as well.
Step 4: Add ice and milk
Next you need to add in some ice. You’ll need a fair amount to cool down the coffee. Or if you’re organised you could make the coffee and leave it to cool down first but I was too excited to wait. Once the ice is in, pour your choice of milk on top and fill the glass. I personally went for oat milk because that’s all I have in the house but most people on TikTok go for full fat milk or cream.
Step 5: Decorate and enjoy
You can decorate this as much as you like. I drizzled over some more spread and then crumbled a Biscoff biscuit over the top. Lots of people top it with whipped cream too. I did it more for the aesthetic than anything because what else am I meant to do now summer is here?
And that’s it. Super yummy and super easy to make, not to mention how pretty it turns out too. It is definitely worth giving it a bit of a mix before drinking though because the coffee is sat at the bottom and you want to appreciate the drink in all it’s delicious glory.
I had so much fun I made a TikTok of the journey:
