Prosecco Gelee with Orange and Whipped Cream

February 9, 2015

Everyone loves jello- especially when it is adult jello! I made this to take to a friend’s house. I used Prosecco for the jello and spiked it with a vanilla bean. I wanted to top it with blood oranges but couldn’t find any.. so used regular ones. Blood oranges are everywhere right now .. so it is a great time to make this delicious, light, dessert!

  • ¾ cup water
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, slit in half
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 2 packets unflavored gelatin powder
  • 12 ounces Prosecco

Add the water, sugar and vanilla bean to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir to loosen the vanilla specks and melt the sugar. Take off the heat and keep aside.

Sprinkle the gelatin powder onto the cold water to soften for 1 to 2 minutes. Fold into the warm syrup and stir well to dissolve the gelatin. Add the Prosecco into the warm mixture and mix well. Pour the gelee mixture evenly to 4 dessert bowls or champagne flutes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
