Coffee Jelly

Sarah 1

"A refreshing Japanese summertime treat! My favorite way to serve it is with frozen whipped cream and chocolate sauce, although it's also delicious with ice cream, regular whipped cream, or flavored coffee cream! It can be served solid in glasses, or cubed in bowls."

WOW, this was absolutely delicious! I have to admit, I did not have the highest hopes for this, but I am so glad I decided to give it a shot anyway. So simple to prepare and very light and refreshing. I made this exactly as written and would not change a thing. I put the cubes in a glass and piped on whipped cream and dusted it with cocoa powder. This recipe is a definate keeper that I will be making VERY often~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

This was a really refreshing coffee jello I ate right out of the cups, no toppings required. I do love my coffee though. I used three single-serve packets of Splenda instead of sugar, which worked great. I'm always looking for a shortcut so instead of dissolving the gelatin separately I just mixed it into the warm coffee/splenda before it came to boiling on the stove. This seemed to work very well but I'm not familiar enough with gelatin to know if that's recommended or not. Thanks very much for sharing.


VERY NICE! This is coffee flavored jello. If you like cream in your coffee, you will definitely want this served with whipped cream. This recipe is definitely for those who like coffee flavored treats. Next time I may add extra gelatine to make jigglers. 1 pkg. of gelatin is 2 1/4 tsp. Thank you Sarah for sharing your recipe.
