Guess what happens when you add Gelatine Powder to Hot Chocolate and make it into Jelly. I have tried it today and I was amazed. As the Hot Chocolate cooled down, the Chocolate Milk separated into layers. When it was set, there were two different coloured layers of Chocolate Milk Jelly, and another layer was on top. It was soft Chocolate Ganache. This is how I made this accidental delicious dessert.
2 teaspoons Gelatine Powder
2 tablespoons Water
2 cups Milk *divided
4 tablespoons Sugar *1 tablespoon is 15ml
2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
4 tablespoons Dark Chocolate Chips
A few drops Vanilla Extract
- Sprinkle Gelatine Powder into Water in a small bowl and soak for 5-10 minutes.
- Place 1 cup Milk, Sugar and Cocoa Powder in a saucepan, heat over medium low heat, and whisk until smooth. Remove from heat when it is close to the boil. Add soaked Gelatine, mix well until Gelatine dissolves.
- Add Chocolate Chips and whisk until Chocolate Chips melt. Then add remaining cold Milk and Vanilla, and mix well. *Note: You can add 1 teaspoon Brandy as well.
- Pour the mixture into serving glasses. Place them in the fridge and leave to set.
