Coffee Jelly

Yield 6 to 8 servings
Try your favorite flavored coffee in this old-fashioned dessert. Decorate each dessert plate with melted vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. Make Ahead

Ingredients

  • 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

How to Make It

  1. 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).

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

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

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