  1.  Whip it Up: In a bowl, combine the instant coffee, sugar, and hot water. Using either a handheld electric mixer or your trusty whisk, beat the mixture until it thickens considerably. This step is where the magic happens – watch as the humble ingredients transform into a luscious, creamy cloud of whipped coffee goodness. Set aside.
  2. Crush and Crumble: Take those irresistible Coffee Delight Candies and place them in a plastic bag. Crush the candies using a kitchen mallet, the bottom of a pot, or a rolling pin. The result? Delicate coffee crystals that will add a delightful crunch to our finished masterpiece.
  3. Assemble and Admire: Grab two glasses and fill them with ice cubes. Pour in your milk of choice, leaving just enough room for the whipped coffee mixture. Spoon or carefully pour the fluffy clouds of caffeinated bliss onto the milk, allowing it to cascade gently over the ice.
  4. Finishing Touches: Sprinkle the crushed coffee crystals over the whipped coffee, letting them shimmer and sparkle in the morning light. Each bite will be a symphony of textures – creamy, crunchy, and utterly irresistible.

  5. Savor the Moment: With your masterpiece complete, take a moment to admire your handiwork. Then, with the reverence befitting such a creation, raise your glass and take that first, glorious sip.
