MY REVIEW

I've made this several times since discovering the recipe on here, and I've also shared it with many people. I haven't had a bad comment on it yet! The only drawback is for people who can't get past their coffee having a jello texture.

I also agree with the other review on here that says it only needs a small bit of whipped cream, if any at all.

This is a great recipe! I couldn't keep my kids out of it. Next time I am going to at least double it! I used cool whip instead of whipping cream, it really only needs a little on top if any. This would be fun to experiment with flavors!

This is delicious and to make it festive at holiday time, try adding whipped cream with a hint of peppermint extract and then sprinkling with crushied peppermint candy. Delish!

I can't wait to try this recipe--my mother made this when I was a little girl. She served it with a tablespoon of half and half poured over the gel.
