Pumpkin Spice Latte

According to New York Magazine, pumpkin is the new bacon and the Pumpkin Spiced Latte is really trending this fall. With the return of Starbucks’ seasonal favorite and slew of imitation recipes making the rounds, I decided I best jump on the bandwagon and make my very own pumpkin spice latte jello. More like a custard than a jello, it is made with milk, pumpkin, and coffee. Allspice and cinnamon give it a cozy, warm flavor and whipped cream rounds it out. And best part is that 4 servings of this jello mold will cost you less than a trip to Starbucks. Happy Fall and Happy Halloween!

Typically served as a punch, Bourbon Fog is made with equal parts coffee, vanilla ice cream, and Bourbon. The jello version has less bourbon so as not to overpower the main attraction- ice cream- but still manages to pack a little buzz. As a birthday request from Shane, he wanted something with ice cream and coffee. Because its not a party without a little booze, I factored in the bourbon and it was served at his birthday BBQ (and unofficial Spring/Summer kickoff party) last weekend. Happy Birthday Shane!

I rang in the new year over the weekend with a little something boozy from the book.  This very rich and creamy Mudslide jello, fashioned after the cocktail, is made with generous amounts of coffee and Irish cream liqueurs, heavy cream, and a touch of vodka. A little cocoa powder tops it off (whipped cream and/or chocolate syrup would also be good).  Have a happy New Year everyone!

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!

Coffee Kahlua Jello

Mini Molds 2I ordered a baker’s dozen of these little molds specifically for this jello recipe.  Instant coffee, sweetened condensed milk, and Kahlua make up these small but very rich mini jellos topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. The recipe for this will appear in my new book.
