This recipe was inspired by the traditional Japanese summer treat. Since I love flavored coffee, I decided to use hazelnut flavoring to make this dessert tastier. You can use any coffee flavor you like. I think Irish cream, Amaretto and French Vanilla will taste wonderful too. If you do not want to buy the syrup, use flavored coffee instead.
2 cups brewed coffee
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
4 tablespoons cold water
2 tablespoons hazelnut syrup
Whipped cream for topping
Combine the coffee and the sugar in a medium sized pan over high heat. Bring to a boil and stir occasionally until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.
Dissolve the unflavored gelatin in cold water. Mix well. Add the gelatin mixture to the coffee mixture. Stir in the hazelnut syrup. Pour the jelly mixture in a container or into individual cups. Let it cool completely in the refrigerator until set. Slice the gelatin and top with whipped cream before serving. Serve cold.
