    YoungEngineer's Note:

    I tried something like this at a Caltech dinner last year, and I loved it so much that I had to reverse-engineer it. I then improved upon it so it's exactly how I like it. It's a lot of time and effort, but I think it's worth it. (Note that all ingredients can be modified to taste. Sugar substitutes work well, but you might need additional gelatin.)
