Make Ahead


6 to 8 servings

Recipe from

Oxmoor House


2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
3/4 cup Kahlúa
3 cups hot brewed coffee
3/4 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
Chocolate shavings


Sprinkle gelatin over Kahlúa in a small bowl; let stand 5 minutes to soften gelatin. Add hot coffee, sugar, and salt; stir until gelatin dissolves (about 2 minutes).

Pour into 6 or 8 lightly greased 4" (1/2 cup) brioche molds; cover and chill overnight.

Use fingers to gently pull jelly away from edges of each mold; unmold onto dessert plates. Dollop with whipped cream; sprinkle with chocolate shavings.

Unmolding Tip: If jelly does not unmold easily, very quickly dip bottom of each mold into hot water to loosen; unmold onto dessert plates.
