Black Sambo Recipe

Who does not love this flavorsome dessert?! Black sambo is often a hit at parties, and it’s actually quite easy to make. You can even prepare this dish the day before and let it chill in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve it. It can be served plain, or you can garnish it with chocolate syrup and sliced fruits.


(Chocolate Layer)
20 grams unflavored gelatin powder
1 cup cold water
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup hot water
1 can evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
 (White Milk Layer)
1 cup cold water
20 grams unflavored gelatin powder
1 can condensed milk
2 1/2 cups cream

In a small bowl, melt 20 grams of gelatin in a cup of cold water. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix cocoa powder and a cup hot water thoroughly. Set aside. Heat evaporated milk in a saucepan on low heat and stir in sugar until well dissolved. Blend in the melted cocoa.  Add the gelatin mixture and stir well until dissolved.  Let this mixture cool by stirring continuously, before transferring to a deep tray. Refrigerate for at least two hours to make sure it has completely set.

Prepare the white milk layer while the chocolate layer sets in the refrigerator.  To make the white milk layer, melt 20 grams of gelatin in a cup of cold water.  Set aside.  Mix cream and condensed milk in a saucepan and cook over low heat until hot.  Add the melted gelatin and stir until well blended (approx. 10 minutes).  Remove from the stove and continue stirring to cool down the mixture.  (It is very important that this mixture has completely cooled down before adding it to the chocolate layer, or else you’ll run the risk of melting and destroying the chocolate layer.)

Take the tray of chocolate layer out of the refrigerator.  Using a ladle or a cup, gradually and carefully transfer the white milk mixture over the solid chocolate layer on the tray.  Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

To serve, turn the black sambo upside down on a serving platter. If you like, you can also drizzle chocolate syrup and top with slices of fresh fruits, chopped nuts, or chocolate bar shavings.
