Chocolate and Vanilla Dessert


When I was in Spain a few months ago, I had something similar to what I made today. Its a simple dessert, great to make ahead of time and you can serve it in small or medium portions.

The dessert is a mix of a vanilla with whipping cream and vanilla with chocolate. I also added blueberries because I love them. Actually, I can’t wait for blueberry season to start. Just a few more months… For this, I used some frozen blueberries I had. You could  substitute another berry such as blackberries, or you could just leave them out. Whatever you use, make sure its fresh or thawed, not frozen berries.

Ingredients for 4 servings:

  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I used 2%)
  • 4 gelatin sheets (8grams)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped


In 2 bowls, add the gelatin sheets (2 sheets per bowl) and cover it with cold water, enough to immerse the sheets.

In a pot, mix 1/2 cup whipping cream, the milk, sugar and vanilla beans scraped from the pod, and the vanilla bean as well. Bring it to boil and remove from the heat.


In two different bowls, strain the mixture and divide the mixture in half transferring to two separate bowls. (We will use half of the mixture now, and the other half later with the chocolate).

Strain 2 sheets of the gelatin and add then into the bowl with the vanilla mixture. Stir until the gelatin us fully incorporated.

Pour the mixture into the 4 glasses, add the blueberies and leave the glasses on an angle (the vanilla mixture is just in half of the glass. The chocolate will go on top). I used a bread mold as a holder. Let it cool down and leave it in the fridge for 1 hour or until it firms up.


After 45 minutes, you can start making the chocolate mixture. In a pot, bring to boil 1/2 cup of whipping cream and the vanilla mixture that is in a bowl. Add the chocolate chips and stir until the chocolate is melted. Add the other 2 sheets of gelatin. (strain them first!) Stir until its sets. Let it cool down. Pour the chocolate mixture into the glasses.


Leave it in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours and eat it 🙂

I love to have it with strawberries!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
