We Love Jellyhearts!

Over the weekend, I suddenly felt like making something. Sooo... I decided to make Strawberry Jellyhearts again! (This is the second time I'm making it). It's reaaaaaaaaaalllyyyyy nice and easy to make! Everyone loved it to bits (especially Vio who can't seem to stop eating it)..

Ok if you wanna make one, this is the recipe that I found on the internet (and slightly modified)


110g digestive biscuits(about 8 pieces), chopped into fine crumbs
40g melted butter

250g cream cheese, soften at room temperature
50g icing sugar
1 tablespoon gelatin powder
1/2 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

1 box Jelly crystal (strawberry flavour) - I used Tortilla
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water

Some strawberries, cut into heart shapes

1. Mix biscuit crumbs & melted butter together and press firmly with the help of a spoon onto the base of a 18cm cake tin. Chill for 30 minutes.

2. Place gelatin powder and boiling water in a bowl. Heat a pot filled with some water until just simmering and place the bowl inside the pot. Dissolve gelatin and boiling water in the bowl. Keep warm.

3. With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese , icing sugar until smooth & creamy. Blend in gelatin solution and vanilla essence and mix well.

4. Using a fork, prick holes all over the biscuit base. Pour the cheese mixture into the cake tin. Layer the strawberries on the cheese mixture. Chill for at least 3 to 4 hours.

5. Dissolve the jelly crystal in the cup of boiling water, followed by the cold water. Pour the jelly on the cheese mixture, just enough to cover the strawberries. Put in fridge. Let it set before removing from the cake tin.
