This recipe made it into our Book #242923! 05/26/09 - What a unique way to enjoy coffee! I made this using French vanilla coffee granuals and served it with chocolate sprinkles over top. Buddha said his mouth at first was going 'yes', 'no', 'yes', 'no' but midway through it was all yes, and he wanted more, that is is a *wild* dessert! Thanks for sharing this very unique recipe that is very easy to make!

OH MY this is so delicious. My absolute fave dessert is Jello and whipped cream. This recipe takes that to a whole new level. It is light and not overly sweet. Finishes off a meal with perfection. This is a major keeper and going in my Divine Cookbook of 2009. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag
