Kahlua-Coffee Gelatin Dessert

"Is it a dessert or a cocktail? I'll leave that up to you, I just know I love this recipe. This recipe should come with a warning that it's addictive. Incredibly simple to prepare. I really wasn't sure if I'd like it or not the first time I made it, but I LOVED IT!!! I use decaf coffee since I serve it in the evening, but you can use regular coffee. I also used half sugar and half stevia, but think it would be good using all stevia or some other sugar substitute. I can't imagine making this without the Kahlua, that puts it over the top. I served the jello in martini glasses. Please take the extra 3-4 minutes to make the flavored whipped cream--it's worth it. Sure, you can use the canned or frozen stuff, it it not as good. Also, be sure to chill the bowl and beater before making the whipped cream. NOTE: "Cook time" is the amount of time needed for chilling."
