  • 1 pkg Unflavored Gelatin we used Knox
  • 3 cups Warm Water
  • 3 Tbsp Instant Coffee
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp White Chocolate Syrup we used Torani
  • 1 cup Warm Milk


  • In a small dish, add the warm water, sprinkle the Gelatin over the water, and stir well, until Gelatin is dissolved.   Allow to sit for about 20 minutes, until the Gelatin absorbs all the water - this is called 'blooming' the Gelatin.   After 20 minutes, add the Sugar, and Instant Coffee powder, and stir until dissolved.
  • Pour the Gelatin - Coffee mixture into a 9 X 11 dish, and place in the refrigerator until the Gelatin is set.  Once the Gelatin is set, or firm to the touch (like Jello) Cut the Gelatin into small cubes, using a butter knife.
  • Fill an 8-ounce glass half full of the Coffee Jellies cubes,  and pour Warm Milk over the top.  Add the White Chocolate Syrup, stir until dissolved, Serve, and Enjoy!
