Coffee Jelly with Condensed Milk and Shaved Chocolate



  • 700ml Strong Black Coffee
  • 70g Brown Sugar
  • 10g Gelatin Powder
  • 250ml Condensed Milk
  • 25g Dark Chocolate


  1. Place the gelatin in a bowl and add a splash of water and whisk until combined.  Allow to sit for a few mins until the gelatin has re-hydrated and bloomed.
  2. Place your coffee in a bowl and add sugar and gelatin and whisk until thoroughly combined and your sugar and gelatin has fully dissolved into the coffee.
  3. Pour your coffee jelly into cups or molds and place them in the refrigerator for 4-6hrs until fully set.
  4. When ready to serve, remove your coffee jelly from the fridge and add approximately 2tbsp of condensed milk along with some grated or shaved chocolate for garnish.


  • This recipe is incredibly quick and easy, and is great for dinner parties when you have a large crowd to feed.  The dish is largely inspired by Vietnamese Coffee, where you have a cup of condensed milk and hot filtered coffee being slowly dripped on top.
  • If possible, use the best quality coffee that you can afford for this recipe as the better the coffee the better the end result will be.
  • Ensure that your coffee is piping hot before you add your sugar and gelatin, otherwise they won’t fully dissolve and be incorporated into your coffee.
  • This recipe should produce enough coffee jellies for 4-6 servings.
