Coconut dessert

Just tried out something with coconut milk and gelatin as I have left over gelatin packets on hand. It turned out pretty good and to my surprise it tasted like coconut halwa.. I could not stop with just one piece as it literally melted in my mouth.

If you happen to have gelatin on hand this recipe is worth trying...Give it a try!!
Ingredients
1  can (13.5 oz) coconut milk(around 1 3/4 cup)
2 cups milk
1 cup water 
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup dried coconut powder or freshly grated coconut
1/2 cup of coarsely chopped nuts(I used walnuts and almonds)
2 tbsp gelatin
Fruits for garnish
Method
Take water and milk in a bowl. Add the gelatin and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
Meanwhile take coconut milk, nuts and sugar in another bowl and mix well. Set aside.
Add the milk gelatin mixture to a sauce pan and bring to a boil for about 5 to 7 minutes till the gelatin dissolves into the milk. Stir occasionally.
Now add the coconut milk-sugar-nut mixture to the pan. Let it come to a boil and let the sugar dissolve. This will take for about 5 to 10 minutes. Check for the sweetness, add more sugar if needed and let it dissolve.
Now turn off the heat and pour the mixture into desired molds. I just poured the mixture into a baking pan so that once it solidifies I can cut into squares and serve.
If you want to pour into individual cups go ahead and do it. It will turn out just fine.Cover with a plastic wrap or a lid.
Stick the pan or cups in the refrigerator and let stand for 5 hours for the mixture to solidify.
Top with chopped fresh fruit and serve chilled for better taste.
