The Breakfast of Champions

22 Jun

As the crazy patrons chuckle maniacally just outside my office door, I close my eyes and enjoy another taste of heaven.

Vietnamese Coffee Jello (adapted from That Winsome Girl’s recipe)

2 packages unflavored gelatin
1/2 c. water
2 c. strong coffee
1 can (14 oz.) condensed milk

Mix the 2 packages of unflavored gelatin in a bowl with the 1/2 c. water. Let this sit while you brew 2 c. of strong coffee. My favorite has been with 2 c. of espresso, but the french press also works well (with 8 T. coffee per 2 c. water). Mix the hot coffee with the gelatin until it is completely dissolved. Add in the can of condensed milk and mix well. Refrigerate.

The original recipe can be found here:

    Mmmm, looks good!! When are you going to come visit us? You could use state travel funds and say that you're going to check out other states' library programs. 😀
