Jelly Never Tasted So Good!
This is a quick and easy gelatin dessert that requires no cooking and is low in calories. Coffee jelly is a popular dessert in Japan. The coffee jelly sold in the stores is usually sweetened, but this version delivers a sharp contrast between the bitter coffee jelly and the sweet milk.
Often you might have entered the kitchen to make jelly for your little kid so that he can show off to his friends that his mom is so cool. You might have cooked orange, strawberry, mango or black current jellies but never tried a hand on the coffee jelly. This unusual recipe allows your child to have his/her first taste of coffee without any side effects. Moreover this jelly just tastes like those coffee toffees that you used to love when you yourself were a kid.
This recipe makes use of both freezing and absolutely hot coffee along with vanilla essence to enhance the flavor. In case you plan to show your cooking expertise in your friend circle then you can as well add whiskey instead of vanilla essence to the jelly to enjoy this unusual recipe to the core.

1 scant quart of boiling water
