Coffee Gelatin

Hi everyone, Today's recipe has become one of my favorite desserts of all times, the simplicity and delicious flavors of this recipe makes it the perfect gift for any special occasion! I hope you like it as much as we did!

  • 4 teaspoons Unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup Chocolate liqueur (wine)(for an alcohol free treat, replace liqueur with milk or heavy cream)
  • 1½ cups Water
  • ¼ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons Instant Coffee

To Garnish:
  • Whipped Cream
  • Grated Chocolate 

In a small bowl combine ½ cup of water with 4 teaspoons of unflavored gelatin, mix well, and set it a side for a moment.

In a small saucepan, heat up 1 cup of water, add in the coffee and sugar, mix well until well dissolved, and cook until the coffee is well heated through. (you can heat it up in the microwave if you prefer so.)

Now combine the hot coffee with the chocolate liqueur, and the gelatine mixture. (The gelatin mixture will be really thick by now, so just stir everything together, until the gelatin is well incorporated (dissolved again) with the rest of the ingredients.

Grease  your gelatine mold to prevent the gelatin from sticking to it, just dampen a paper towel with vegetable oil, and rub it all over your mold. Then pour the gelatin mixture right into your mold and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until the gelatin has settle.

Once the gelatin has settle, run a small knife around the edges of your gelatine, then flip it onto your plate, then decorate with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. Enjoy!
