Choc and Oreo Agar Agar


Ingredients

1 packet agar-agar powder (I use Rose brand)
1 litre water
250g sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
100ml whipping cream (dairy or non-dairy)
3 tbsp cocoa powder
3-4 tbsp hot water
crushed oreos (abt 10-12 pcs or more)

Method

1. Combine water, agar-agar powder and sugar into a pot and heat it over the stove
2. When agar-agar powder and sugar have dissolved, add evaporated milk and leave it to boil, stirring occassionally with a balloon whisk
3. Add hot water to cocoa powder 1 tbsp at a time, mix it till well blend and put the cocoa mixture aside
4. Whip whipping cream till soft peak and put it aside
5. Once agar-agar mixture boils, remove it from the heat and stir and let it cool slightly
6. Add whipped cream slowly at the same time stirring the mixture, then add cocoa mixture and stir till well blend
7. Pour half of the mixture into the agar-agar mould and let it set for about 5-10 minutes
8. Sprinkle generously the crushed oreos and slowly pour the other half of the mixture into the mould
9. Let the agar-agar cool before keeping it in the fridge
10.Serve chilled

tips by ME:
- make sure your agar agar is really 'slightly cooled' before adding in the whip cream! else u might get a 'cappuccino effect' on your agar agar mixture =)

- somehow water tend to appear very quickly after the agar agar is done after refrigeration. my suggestion is reduce the amount of water slightly. i suspect its the cocoa and whipped cream

- the stiffer your whipped cream is, the more sticky and dry the texture of the agar agar will be ( something like an egg pudding) so its up to your personal taste.


great dessert i must say but definitely not going to make this all the time. enjoy! =)
