Coffee Jelly

Recipe by  

"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. :)

Hesitated making this recipe, but did because it is simple. Others in household like coffee; I do not. If it tasted as good as it smells brewing I might enjoy it. Without topping (whip cream, ice cream, or other), jello doesn't taste good. Will not be making recipe again. Coffee drinkers enjoy!

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.

This is my "study food". I ate this while i was studying for a test and was up all night. The good thing about this was i got a good grade on the test.....and the taste was good to.....LOL

So simple, yet so good. Made the recipe as is, but used strong coffee. We decided to serve them in glasses for individual portions. Topped with whipped cream and a dusting of hot cocoa mix. My coffee addict hubby-to-be loved this of course, as did I and I don't drink coffee regularly. Very refreshing.

This is DELICIOUS. I used extra bold french roast, and once the jelly was set, just some Belgian chocolate coffee creamer. I sprinkled a little cocoa powder on top. I could it this whole bowl in one sitting!
