  • 4 cups hot coffee strongly brewed
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 3 Tbsp gelatin

Coffee Jello
  1. Whisk hot coffee, gelatin, and sugar in a large measuring cup (measuring at least 4 cups) until completely dissolved.

  2. Pour into 8x8 square pan and chill for at least 4-6 hours, preferably overnight.

  3. When firm and completely chilled, cut into squares and carefully place into individual glasses or small bowls.

Sweet Milk
  1. Whisk 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk and milk until smooth and fully combined. Transfer into a small pitcher for serving.

To Serve
  1. Place coffee jello into individual cups/bowls. Pour sweet milk over jello squares and serve immediately with spoons and extra sweet milk.

  2. Optional: To make your coffee jello ombre, fill about 3/4 of the way with sweet milk. Top with a little extra coffee, gently stir, and serve.
