German Chocolate Cake Shots
Contrary to popular belief, German chocolate cake did not originate in Germany, but was named for the American baking chocolate inventor Sam German. That, however, did not stop me from making these German Chocolate Cake pudding shots for a recent German themed birthday party at a German beer hall. Layered with chocolate pudding infused with cake flavor vodka and butterscotch pudding infused with rum and topped with shredded coconut, these pudding shots were erstaunlich lecker!

Cadbury Irish Creme Egg

To help celebrate Easter at Katharine’s Easter Champagne Brunch party this weekend, I concocted these little Cadbury Creme Egg inspired jello shots. Jello jiggler style chocolate eggs cut from a tiny egg shaped cookie cutter are spiked with a generous amount of Irish Cream and topped with a sweetened condensed milk yoke. These super fun little treats are sure to be a big hit. Have a Happy Easter!

I made this jello a last year for St. Patty’s day and it was such a hit it deserves revisiting. Green and minty with a little liqueur to warm the heart, this jello mold just feels like Christmas to me. Crème de menthe and sweetened condensed milk top off a chocolaty cookie crust. This recipe appears in my book Hello Jell-O! but I’m sharing it here as my holiday gift to you. Check out my book for many more recipes like this one (52 to be exact) and have a safe and happy holiday season!

I love cheesecake! But with the heatwave we experienced this summer who wants to slave away over a hot oven. The beauty of this cheesecake, made with cream cheese and sour cream, is no baking! It is rounded out with a strawberry gelatin topping and a cookie crust.

A little something special for Valentine’s day this year, I made this multi-layer heart shaped mold. The top layer is raspberries suspended in clear gelatin over a layer of sweetened condensed milk over a layer of raspberry gelatin over a crust of chocolate cookie crumbs. This was no easy feat so I hope my someone special loves it. Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Get Well Jello (Godiva Chocolate & Cherries)

This jello mold was created especially for my friend Angeli who suffered an unfortunate climbing wall accident resulting in even more unfortunate knee surgery resulting in her being couch-ridden and hopped on pain pills for several weeks.  This black cherry topped jello mold is made with D’gari brand vanilla gelatin prepared with milk. In the mix is an added bonus of nearly an entire bottle Godiva chocolate liqueur (minus whatever I chugged while preparing it). This rich and indulgent dessert was made with the intention of completely making up for the fact that her entire summer was ruined by an ill-timed sports injury.  Hope you are back on your feet soon Angeli!

Tiramisu Jello

A request came in months ago from my friend Angeli to work out recipe for Tiramisu Jello. After a little experimenting I found the perfect balance of mascarpone cheese and sweetened condensed milk wrapped around coffee soaked lady fingers dusted with chocolate. A recipe that is very similar to the real thing but with a little gelatin to hold it all together in a tidy little serving.  Despite several reminders over the intervening months to make this jello, I managed to hold off the request to surprise her with it for her recent birthday. As you see this decadent dessert was met with much enthusiasm. The recipe for this appears in my new book. Happy Birthday Angeli!

This jello mold version of the creamy, minty pie is sure to induced the luck of the Irish… or the crème de menthe liquour will just induce intoxication.  In addition to crème de menthe, this rich jello is made with sweetened condensed milk, sour cream, and sits atop a chocolatey crust. The recipe for this appears in my new book. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Inspired by Mexican spicy hot chocolate this jello is made with real milk, cocoa, and hot chili powder.  The combination of sweet, rich chocolate and spicy chile creates a very exotic flavor, topped will cool whipped cream and garnished with coco powder. This is the first of many jello recipes to come that will appear in my new book I have recently begun work on.  Stay warm!

For many, pumpkin pie is synonymous with Thanksgiving and this jello recipe was inspired by my mother’s own recipe for pumpkin pie, served every year for turkey day without fail.  Its made with canned pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. A bottom “crust” is made from melted chocolate chips.  This is another in a series of Thanksgiving themed jello recipes created for KitchenDaily.com.  Click to read the full article and see step-by-step photos for how to create your own.

I found a box of this D’Gari brand cappuccino flan desert at a grocery store in Clinton Hill and had to try it. I added my own flair by submerging a chocolate wafer in the flan while it was still liquid to create a cakey chocolate vein in the  center of the desert. I love flan and I love coffee, and this is a delicious marrage of the two.

Thank you to Flossie for giving me a whole collection of Jello molds she accumulated from the thrift stores of Virginia. This shell shaped mold was among them. It reminded me of those little chocolates from a box of assortments that lingers around long after Christmas and after your New Year’s diet has begun.  So I created this milk chocolate jello with roasted salted macadamia nuts and a splash of Irish cream.
