  • 135 grams lemon jelly Jell-o, 1 standard pack
  • 410 gram tin evaporated milk 420 gram tin is fine
  • 115 grams good quality dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Extra grated Dark chocolate for topping


  • Melt the jelly in half a pint of boiling water. Now place in the fridge until it starts to set.
  • Once it has achieved a slushy consistency it is ready. This can take anything from about 45 minutes to 2 hours. Keep checking on your jelly, you don’t want it to fully set.
  • When the jelly is ready it time to melt the chocolate.
  • Place the chocolate, tablespoons of water and milk into a heat proof bowl and place the bowl over a pan of hot water and keep the pan on a medium heat.
  • You can also melt your chocolate; water and milk in a microwave, just do it for 30 seconds at a time, keeping a close eye on it.
  • Once melted, place on one side to cool slightly.
  • Empty the whole can of evaporated milk into a large mixing bowl.
  • Using an electric hand whisk, whisk the evaporated milk until it has doubled in size in your bowl.
  • Add your partially set jelly to the whisked evaporated milk and whisk them together.
  • Carefully fold in the lukewarm melted chocolate mix. You must be gentle so as not to knock all the air out of the mixture.
  • Pour or spoon the mixture in to either a large bowl or individual serving bowls and refrigerate for a few hours. Overnight if possible.
  • Once ready to serve grate a little more of your dark chocolate over the top.
  • Then simply enjoy, cream or yogurt are totally optional.
