Gelatinizing Things Is My New Hobby

On a Monday morning, nothing perks you up like a good, strong cup of coffee. But coffee doesn't do much to curb those Retro WW hunger pangs.

Or does it?

Admittedly, I have never been much of a java junkie, but have recently become a fan since coffee is one of the few items that is "legal" in unlimited amounts on the 1972 Retro WW Program. I can drink all the coffee I want. Anytime I want. But I'm still hungry.

So the obvious question that everyone should be asking at this point is: Can I figure out a way to EAT my coffee???

And the answer of course is YES! But how?

Coffee Gelatine

1 envelope unflavored gelatine
2 cups cooled coffee
4 tsp artificial sweetener

Sprinkle gelatine over 1/2 cup coffee in small saucepan; stir over low heat until gelatin dissolves. Add remaining coffee and sweetener. Pour into mold. Cover. Chill until firm.

Now go grab a spoon and EAT YOUR COFFEE!

What a great idea! Exactly like an adult Jello shot!

Don't usually drink coffee but might be persuaded to now. :)

Do you think if I put some cool whip on that it'd be like adding milk to my coffee?

My mom used to make this in the 70s and I loved it! You're inspiring me to go make some tomorrow :)

LOL.. definitely different. I'm not sure if I'm grossed out or intrigued? It's almost a little frightening... like when you come home from vacation and see that you forgot to wash the coffee pot from that morning you left... and that's almost what it looks like!!!! LOL

Sorry!!! I'm sure it's delish! Not being a coffee drinker anyways (my kids LOVE it) it's not for me but it's a definite idea of how to create something a little more filling from other things? Hmmmm? Green Tea jello shots? LOL

Ok, and the verification word is FRIES? WTF? I'm sorry... that's just wrong for a skinny blog! Those safety elves are playing with us! LOL
