thạch cà phê sữa đá / sweet vietnamese coffee jello recipe
Cà phê sữa đá is basically jet fuel with sweetened condensed milk. Big on flavor, caffeine and sweet. Decidedly Vietnamese for sure. Cảm ơn / thank you / to Amy at thatwinsomegirl.blogspot.com for posting her recipe. She had way prettier cubes than I did but the flavor is spot on. I topped mine with sliced almonds, cocoa nibs and a dusty of cocoa powder for looks a little mocha nod. Served up in single spots, they were great for sweet ending for a meal and I might have had some for breakfast too.
- Do not hold back on brewing strong coffee or making a lot of espresso shots.
- Three packs of gelatin is the correct amount and not too stiff.
- I used Starbuck’s via packets 4 per 1 cup of water.
- On double batches: I did try doubling the recipe, but actually do not recommend it for this recipe. First, this is pretty rich gelatin, two, I grew weary of stirring to get the heavier sweetened condense milk and gelatin dissolved and it did not seem to set as firm as the original batch size.
