  • 9 graham cracker sheets
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter melted


  • 16 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups cool whip
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 2 tbsp instant coffee
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp hot water


  • To prepare the crust, smash the graham crackers with a rolling pin or by hand until it’s mostly crumbled and only a few small chunks remain.
  • Mix the butter and sugar in with the crushed crackers until well combined.
  • Prepare a cake pan with wax paper or butter spray and press the crust mix into the pan in a thin layer. Refrigerate while you are preparing the filling.
  • To prepare the Dalgona coffee, whip the instant coffee, hot water and sugar together until fluffy stiff peaks form and the mix turns a light brown or tan color. Set aside.
  • To prepare the filling, beat the cream cheese in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer or by hand until it becomes creamy and light.
  • Beat in the powdered sugar and vanilla extract until smooth.
  • Fold in the Dalgona mix and cool whip.
  • Remove the crust from the fridge, pour the filling into the pan and spread evenly.
  • Refrigerate for 4 hours before serving. Enjoy with fresh raspberries and crushed graham cookies on top, if desired.
