Mocha coffee jelly is a yummy dessert that is easy to prepare. You can make it ahead of time and just chill it until needed. It is perfect for parties or intimate dinners. It can also be served as an afternoon treat.

Serves 4


For the coffee jelly:

2 teaspoons instant coffee

2 cups hot water

1 tablespoon sugar

3 tablespoons unflavored gelatin

For the mocha mousse:

1 teaspoon instant coffee

1/2 cup hot water

1/2 cup chopped semisweet chocolate

2 tablespoons butter

3 egg yolks

1/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups whipped cream

Chocolate shavings, for serving

Whipped cream, for serving

Cocoa powder, for serving


To prepare the coffee jelly, place hot water in a small saucepan. Dissolve the coffee in the water.  Stir in the sugar and gelatin.  Place the saucepan over medium heat and allow it to boil. Pour it into a 9 inch square pan and let it cool completely until it is set. Slice it into cubes.

Next prepare the mousse by dissolving the coffee in hot water. Set aside. After, melt the chocolate in a heat proof bowl over boiling water or a double boiler. Remove from heat and fold in the butter and half of the coffee mixture.  Let it cool.

In a separate saucepan, whisk the egg yolks. Add the remaining coffee mixture and the sugar. Place it over low heat and cook it for 2 minutes. Stir constantly. Remove from heat and add in the chocolate mixture and the whipped cream. Mix well.

Place the cubed coffee jelly in dessert cups or glasses. Spoon some mocha mouse over it. Chill it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until set. Top it with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and cocoa powder before serving.
