½ tin Sweetened Condensed Milk (Milkmaid)
4 regular teacups Water
8 tbsps. Instant Coffee
4 tbsps. Sugar
4 tbsps. Unflavored Gelatin
Whipped Cream & Cherries (optional)
Soak gelatin in one cup water.

In a small loaf tin pour 1/2 inch layer of black coffee jelly & chill until set.
Then pour a ½ inch layer of milk coffee jelly over the set black coffee jelly. Chill in the fridge again.
Stir each of the jelly well before layering.
Similarly, alternate layers until both the jelly is used up. Chill until set.
