So embarassing to say that I failed at my second attempt too, will surely blame the Jel a tin powder and my impatience to do these... Love the taste, probably have to adjust with mousse for today... Most annoying thing, hubby giving that cheeky smile, I will prove him wrong next time by making a good one ;)

Love those moulds Cookie  :) they look beautifull and very tempting

Oh no Thermilover !! Sorry to hear this! I hope they turn out as a mousse instead so your efforts (and ingredients) aren't wasted. I don't know if you would ever get the same gelatin 'rubbery' type jelling effect with the jelly powder you are using... I'm keen to try my agar one day to see what's possible as it would be good to have a vegetarian option too.

That's okay Slice of Health, I will surely give it a go again as I love the taste, and this time I had used Cacao and a bit of cocoa, and yes it turned out like a nice mousse, so no regrets, just that I will be eating it off the moulds with a spoon ;)
But not losing hope, will try again especially after such wonderful reviews :)

Slice of health, do you think coconut sugar would work? I don't have any rapadura but do have a big bag of coconut sugar

Yes definitely Wonder, coconut sugar will work just the same. Any sugar will work actually. Let us know how you go!  :)

I have run out and will make some more, but I'd like a gelatine substitute, I feel a bit uneasy using that, although I'm not a vegetarian. It just feels a bit wrong. I want to think of a way to change the flavour of these a little.

I guess you could leave the cacao out and flavour them with almost anything. Perhaps freeze dried fruit would be nice.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Yes sky is the limit with different flavours, pureed fruits, fruit juices (eg lemon/lime), different milks, chocolate, coffee etc. Must try my agar agar when I get a chance, I would also like to create a vegetarian option.
