I wasn't sure if I was intrigued, or repulsed by the idea, but I watched through the video - mainly because I got a big kick out the lady's way of saying "cwafee" for coffee.
By the time she was done, I knew I had to try some cwafee jello for myself.
The recipe is simple:
- 1/2 cup cold coffee
- 2 packets of unflavored gelatin
- 1/2 cup of sugar (or Splenda)
- 3 cups of hot coffee
- whip cream to top
Dissolve the gelatin in the cold coffee, and allow to set for 10 minutes.
Stir in the hot coffee, and sugar.
Pour into a 9''x13'' baking dish, and place in the refrigerator for about 4 hours, until solid.
Cut into cubes, and serve topped with whipped cream.
It turns out, that not being a big fan of coffee with cream and sugar, I'm not a huge fan of this dessert, either. But, the jello texture, and the coffee flavor go together better than I expected. I think if you like cream and sugar in your cwafee, then this would be a nice, after dinner treat.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
