With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s recipe series! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.


In this recipe you’ll learn how to make a super easy Korilakkuma Coffee Jelly Parfait with Dororich, a coffee jelly that can be bought in Japan.


1: Ingredients

Coffee Jelly (*the coffee jelly used in this recipe was bought at Daiso)

Chocolate Pens


Ice Cream

2: First we will make Korilakkuma’s facial features with the chocolate pens. Draw your favourite illustration of Korilakkuma onto parchment paper. Be sure to draw the base of the ears sharp so they can stick into the ice cream later on.


Fill in the lines of the ears and mouth with a white chocolate pen. Once they’ve fully solidified, draw on the eyes and details of the mouth in black and use pink to finish the ears. Place into the freezer to fully harden.


☆If the features aren’t fully solidified they will melt and break when you put them onto the ice cream.

☆The coffee jelly used in this recipe was prepared according to the instructions on the box.

☆The coffee jelly sold at Daiso can be made by simply dissolving in water.


①Use a hot ice cream scoop to scoop out a ball of ice cream. Using a heated scoop ensures a rounder shape. It only melts the ice cream a tiny bit so it’s fine to add the facial features. It’s harder if you try adding them to hard ice cream as they will break apart easily.


②Place your solidified coffee jelly into a glass and add extra ice cream for add layers.

4: Finally, top with your Korilakkuma you made in step 3.

If you a little bit of milk and mix you’ll get a delicious combination of ice cream and coffee jelly♡
