It's Valentine's Day today! Happy Valentine's Day to all of you :)) Valentine's Day is a special day and is the perfect time to express your love to your family, friends and loved ones in the most extraordinary way by sending gifts and sending wishes to them. I made these easy Heart Shaped Jelly (using agar agar powder) for my cousin and friends yesterday and it is so nice looking at their happy faces and seeing their big smiles.....

Heart Shaped Jelly
- Here is the recipe
Prepare one 6" heart shaped, one 5" heart shaped mold and 3-4 trays of small heart shaped & rose mold
100ml Fresh milk
6g Agar agar powder
- 1 pandan leaf, wash and clean then tie pandan leaf into a small knot.
- Put all ingredients except fresh milk into a pot and keep stirring agar agar liquid to boil at medium heat. Off heat, discard leaf, add fresh milk and stir liquid for another two minutes.
- Pour some agar agar liquid into a measuring cup and add a drop of pink coloring into it, mix well then pour into the small tray. Continue to use up the agar agar liquid with any coloring you like.
- Put small trays to set in fridge for about 20 minutes and remove small hearts and roses from mold.
*I bought the heart shaped ice cube tray at Giant, Vivo City
*I used one and a half recipes for 3 Heart Shaped Jelly
Now prepare agar agar liquid for a 5 inches and 6 inches heart shaped mold.
7g Agar agar powder
1 Pandan leaf, wash and clean then tie pandan leaf into a small knot.
Put everything into pot and keep stirring agar agar liquid to boil at medium heat. Off heat, discard leaf and continue to stir agar agar liquid for another 2 minutes.
Then pour some agar agar liquid into molds about half inches high, wait for a while till liquid to semi-set, using a small knife to scratch the agar agar then arrange the small hearts and roses on top.
Cool down remaining agar agar liquid a little (not too hot) and gently pour liquid over the small hearts and roses. Leave to set in fridge for few hours or till next day.
Happy Valentine's Day!!
