I made chocolate jelly

I made chocolate jelly yesterday. It was great! I had to do it twice to get it right. The first time I did it I added way less gelatin than I should have. So it ended up doing all liquid and mushy even after 12 hours in the fridge. Had to melt the jelly again and add some more gelatin. Always add more!

I'm super new to cooking so I don't measure anything because I feel like i'll go into this never ending loop of thinking and not doing thats why I go by intuition. Works most of the time but sometimes it doesn't. Like yesterday I tried to make some spicy carbonara sauce and spaghetti, it didn't turn out so well. But that is fine because cooking is all about experimentation, I'll get better.

Anyways seems like I went off topic so back to the jelly, I added some more gelatin and lo and behold it turned into a proper wiggly wobbly jelly in just under 2 hours.

here's the recipe for the curiousĀ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEqpwpfFfhE

you can fly by intuition with cooking, but not with baking.

jelly (while not involving an oven) kinda sorta comes under the latter! you *have* to follow the measurements Lol
