Coffee Jelly Recipe

Recipe Type: Puddings, Creams & Custards, Coffee, Gelatin
Yields: 8 servings
Prep time: 15 min


5 teaspoons (1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons) unflavored gelatin*
1/2 cup coffee liqueur
3 cups prepared hot coffee
3/4 cup granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
Sweetened whipped cream

* It is always best to measure the the amount of gelatin needed as the envelopes of gelatin can vary.


In a large bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the coffee liqueur; let stand until the gelatin is softened, about 5 minutes. Once the gelatin is softened, add hot coffee, sugar, and salt; stir the mixture until the gelatin is completely dissolved and the mixture is clear.

Pour the coffee liquid into either eight (8) individual jello molds, custard cups, dessert glasses, or coffee cups. Refrigerate until the jellies are firm

When ready to serve, remove from refrigerator. If poured into jello molds, unmold before serving. Add some sweetened whipped cream to the top of each jelly and serve.

Makes 8 servings.
