Mocha Jello with Chocolate Ice Cream

72

Mocha coffee in the solid form.

1
1 tablespoon agar agar
1 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon instant coffee
4 oz. chocolate ice cream (optional)
1 - Mix agar agar, water and sugar, put in a pot and simmer (not boil), stir until well mixed and sticky, about 3 to 5 minutes. Just before you turn of the heat, mix in instant coffee. Note: If you just want to make a simple Mocha jello, skip steps 2 to 4; just pour the above mixture into a mold and put it in the refrigerator to harden. If you want a fancy dessert, read on. 2 - Pour the jello mixture into a large mold, then place a small mold in the middle of the large mold. If the small mold floats, use a small cup, stone or something heavy to hold it down. This step is to create a hole in the middle of the jello to place chocolate ice cream. (An alternative, easier way is to wait until the entire jello hardens, then cut out a hole in the middle using a small cookie cutter.) 3 - Put the mold into the refrigerator and let the jello harden, about 1 hour. 4 - After the jello is ready, remove it from the big mold, then take out the small mold in the middle. Place on a serving plate and put a scoop of chocolate ice cream in the hole. You can put the ice cream high up like a mountain, or press it down and let it melt and overflow to the plate. (All this is just for visual effect.)
