Perk Up with Coffee Jello

I've acquired a taste for coffee in the last year. Honestly before all I drank was tea and coffee made me think, bleh! but I've slowly moved towards coffee and as usual it's not just one thing that I begin to like.. it has to be everything in-between. Coffee flavored everything, like candies, ice cream, desserts and now jello. A caffeine fix in a jiggly format. This recipe is an Asian style dessert because it uses condensed milk which is popular in Vietnamese coffees and desserts. The popular jelly recipe is normally jello with the creme on top but to make things easier and more portable I've mixed it all together.   
 What you will need:
1 - Can sweetened condensed milk
3 - Packets Knox unflavoured gelatin
2 - Cups strong coffee, hot
1/2 - Cup cold water

1. Place 1/2 c cold water in a bowl.
2. Sprinkle 3 unflavored gelatin packets over the water. Let sit until the gelatin blooms, about 5 minutes.
3. Stir in the hot coffee and mix until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
4. Stir in the can of sweetened condensed milk.
5. Pour into glass pan. Thickness of finished jello depends on the size of the pan. I used a 7 x 11 pan but a 9 x 13 pan will give you thinner pieces and an 8 x 8 pan will give you thicker pieces.
