  • 1/2 cup instant coffee (I used 4 tablespoon)
  • 2 tablespoon gelatin powder (I used 1 small packet of  agar-agar)
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • whipped cream (optional)
  • chocolate syrup (optional)
  • coffee creamier (optional)
  • fresh milk (optional)


  1. Combine instant coffee, gelatin powder, sugar and water in a saucepan. Let boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally until completely dissolved.
  2. Transfer mixture into cups or small dessert bowls. Chill for 1-2 hours.
  3. Top jelly with some whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate sauce just before serving.
  4. I just added coffee creamier and cut some into cubes and added to cold fresh milk.
