Recipe from Russia: Chocolate Jelly/Jello recipe…

I have been posting a lot of recipes. I am trying to get them done before the holidays get to far into a full swing and I seem to be running out of time. This is a simple Jello as we call it in America. The Russians eat very little varieties of jello or Jelly as they call it. It is interesting to get to live in two societies…

Jelly in Russia is jello in the USA! In America jelly is spread on bread. In Russia, jelly is molded gelatin. But we both have jam, which is jelly with real chunks of fruit in it. A Russian does not understand a jam like a jelly with no fruit in it… 🙂

choc-jellyLets make a chocolate version of jello…

Ingredients:
3 oz chocolate (Real chocolate!)
2 cups milk
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp vanilla (Fake is okay because you will rarely find real, in America! In Russia use real vanilla.)
2 tbsp plain unsweetened colorless gelatin

Method:
Pour over gelatin cold first boiled water (use – 1 part gelatin to 9 parts water). Use a sauce pan as you will reheat it…

Leave the gelatin to sit for 40-60 minutes and then warm on a very low heat, do not boil. Some say to strain the mixture and if using low quality gelatin please do so…

Then bring the milk to almost a boil (Milk will scorch, so be cautious.). Dissolve the chocolate, sugar, vanilla and then pour in the gelatin liqiud…

Stir carefully and pour into small bowls or a holiday type mold. Cool down in the refrigerator, then eat…

This is a product that can be found almost anywhere in Russia, Russians love chocolate and this is just another way to satisfy that sweet tooth that many Russians have…

I still have 6 more recipes to post before Christmas…
