Hey guys! I wanted to share with you a super easy and cute recipe for Hello Kitty milk jellies! Milk jellies are very popular in Japan, and the ones I’ve picked up at my local Japanese grocery store are delicious, so I wanted to recreate them at home using organic flavored milk and my Hello Kitty Silicon Mold which I’ve used for SO many other projects like my Hello Kitty White Chocolate Truffles!
This recipe was available on my old blog which no longer exists so please excuse the watermark but I AM indeed Amby and you could even visit my new main blog AmbyCakes.com for full details if you’re curious about what happened to the blog I worked so hard at growing. 😀 Never give up on your dreams, okay?!
Using organic flavored milks means the quality of your product will be so much better and more natural tasting. The pink strawberry jellies have a touch of food coloring since the strawberry milk I used didn’t contain any added coloring. I used Horizon brand for all three flavors (not sponsored). I really love this brand in particular but by all means use what you have available or what you prefer! ^_^
I took three small bowls and added 1 packet of unflavored gelatin to each bowl and 2 tbsp of hot water and whisked together until a gooey paste formed. Then I heated the flavored milk to a simmer and slowly whisked in 3/4 cup of the flavored milk to each bowl until completely dissolved. Add to your Hello Kitty silicon mold and place in the refrigerator for about an hour.
Be sure to place your Hello Kitty silicon mold on top of a plate prior to pouring your jelly mixture to avoid spills. This mold is pliable after all!
These jellies are light in flavor and sweetness and slightly firm, but not as firm as a gummy bear. Please refrigerate and consume your super adorable Hello Kitty Milk Jellies within 3 days and store them in an air-tight container to avoid them drying out. It’s gelatin after all!
I think these would make a really cute gift for a loved one or great for a Hello Kitty party but I would advise to be cautious of serving to little ones since they are quite small. Let’s keep these treats for the bigger kids and kids at heart like myself! 🙂 Enjoy!
- 3/4 cup flavored milk ( I used chocolate, strawberry and vanilla)
- 1 TBSP Sugar
- .25 ounces (1 packet of Knox unflavored gelatin)
- 2 TBSP hot water
- Combine gelatin powder and hot water until paste forms
- Bring flavored milk and sugar to a simmer on low heat.
- Carefully pour flavored milk into gelatin and whisk until combined.
- Pour into Hello Kitty silicon molds
- Chill in fridge for at lest one hour before serving
- Although the sugar adds a touch of sweetness it's main purpose for this recipe is to slow down the process of potentially burning your heated milk and withstand possible coagulation due to the protein structures reacting to high heat.
