- 2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
- 1 1⁄2 cups cold water
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1⁄2 cup sugar

- Soak the gelatin in the cold water until softened. Stir in the boiling water and stir until the gelatin is dissolved.
- Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Stir in the coffee. Pour into a mold and chill thoroughly.
- Coffee and Cream Jelly Variation: Do not mold the jelly. Refrigerate in the mixing bowl in which it was made. When it begins to stiffen, beat it until it is light and foamy. Beat 1 cup heavy cream with 2 tablespoons sugar. Fold the whipped cream and whipped jelly together and place in a mold. Chill thoroughly.
