Looking for a delicious dessert to serve after dinner tonight? Mr. Food has an Italian delicacy that's a snap to make.

Serves: 6

Preparation Time: 5 min

Chilling Time: 6 hours

Cooking Time: 5 min


  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    1. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over milk; let stand until gelatin is softened, about 5 minutes.

    2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally until sugar has dissolved. (Do not let it come to a boil.)

    3. Remove mixture from heat, add softened gelatin mixture, and stir to completely dissolve gelatin.

    4. Strain hot mixture into a large glass bowl then carefully pour or spoon mixture into custard cups. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
