COMBINE gelatin and 1/2 cup water in small bowl until well mixed; set aside. Grease 6-cup mold or 9-inch-round baking pan.

HEAT evaporated and condensed milks in medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add gelatin mixture, stirring constantly for 5 minutes or until completely dissolved. Stir in remaining 2 cups water into hot mixture.

DIVIDE the mixture in three equal portions (about 2 cups per bowl). Place first portion into prepared mold; refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Stir cookies and cinnamon into second portion; carefully pour on top of first layer. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set but not firm. Stir in walnuts and Milo into third portion and gently pour onto second layer. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until firm.

TO SERVE: Dip knife in warm water and run knife around rim; gently shake to loosen. Invert onto serving dish.

* May also use about 12 Maria cookies instead of vanilla wafers.

This recipe cannot be done in a flash. But the pleasure of tasting the delicious and rich taste makes this gelatine a standout among gelatine recipes. I used Maria's galletas (cookies) and I would use less walnuts and finely chopped too. I even think the chocolate layer is heavenly without any walnuts at all! I think you should finely crush the cookies also. The recipe never says how finely to crush.I prefer making my gelatins in rectangular bar pans. You can reverse the order listed so that your top matches the top of this recipe. Plan on a minimum 6 hours total or more time to set.


This dessert, although a little time consuming, truly is worth it! I make it every chance that I get and always receive great compliments. The layers can look amazing if using the right mold. And the taste will surprise your taste buds.




So yummy. So creamy!


This seems like a very nice variation on the traditional panna cotta - Italian eggless custard. I love cinnamon and the wafers add a texture to an otherwise bland dessert.
