Iced mocha with a homemade toasted marshmallow syrup.
iced s’mores latte
If you’re looking for the coffee of the summer, I’ve got you covered – what embodies summer more than s’mores?! We’re making homemade toasted marshmallow syrup for this, with toasted marshmallows melted directly into the simple syrup! Essentially, we’re adding that toasted marshmallow syrup to an iced mocha. It’s pure, summery latte deliciousness.
I’ve partnered again with my all-time favorite coffee brand: papanicholas coffee for this iced s’mores latte. I use their coffee beans every day and am so happy to be able to partner with them to spread the love of their coffee. In this recipe I used their mocha java espresso beans which is super smooth and slightly sweet with notes of cocoa. I definitely highly recommend trying some of their coffee, they have so many delicious flavors and are always the coffee I use in my recipes (and for my daily caffeine dose!). You can find their website by clicking here. Also, if you do end up purchasing their coffee be sure to use code FRESH20 for 20% off your coffee order!
ingredients and substituions
For the toasted marshallow syrup:
Granulated sugar & water: the base of the simple syrup.
Marshmallow: you’ll want jumbo or large marshmallows for this. Smaller marshmallows have more starch on them, which will mess with the consistency of your syrup.
Vanilla: for flavor!
For the s’mores latte:
Chocolate: use your favorite semi-sweet or dark chocolate baking bar here! I wouldn’t recommend chocolate chips
Milk: use your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk alternative here.

iced s’mores latte q&a
how to store the homemade toatsed marshmallow syrup
This recipe makes more toasted marshmallow syrup than you’ll need for one latte. You can keep the extra sauce stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. You can also scale down the recipe super easily to make less, going off the number of marshmallows. For example, if you want to cut the recipe into a quarter, you’ll use: 50g granulated sugar, 56g water, 1 jumbo marshmallow, and 1/4 tsp. vanilla.
can I use instant espresso instead of brewed espresso?
Definitely! Simply combine 60mL of hot water with the amount of instant espresso needed as stated on the packaging.
why do you measure in grams?
My recipes are all written in grams because it is the most accurate way to bake. When you use a kitchen scale, you ensure that your baked goods turn out as close to the written recipe as possible. Plus, the cleanup is way easier when using a scale! I will provide standard cup measurements but please note that I have not tested the recipe using cup measurements and therefore can not guarantee your recipe will come out how mine did. Here is my favorite kitchen scale.

- Allow the syrup to sit for 10 minutes, then pass it through a fine mesh sieve into a container.

- Line a coffee glass with melted chocolate on the inside (optional, for aesthetics!)
- Add the chopped chocolate and toasted marshmallow syrup to the glass, and brew the espresso directly over it.
- Mix the chocolate and espresso together until the chocolate has melted.
- Pour the milk over the espresso.
- Add in ice to fill up the cup.
- Top with whipped cream, crushed graham crackers, and more toasted marshmallows. Enjoy!
