Chocolate & Corn Agar Agar

I am back!! Thank you everyone for your warm Birthday wishes. Carlos and I had a good time in CA. Came home early this morning and it was a tiring trip. It was really warm in CA and I got myself a good tan. In this hot and humid weather it is nice to have this cool and refreshing agar agar. I actually made this when we were having the heatwaves and finally get to post it now.

Ingredients :

1 packet (7 grm) of Swallow Brand white agar agar powder
600 ml of water
1 cup of low fat milk
1/2 cup of sugar (more if you want it sweeter)
2 tbsp of coco powder
1/2 can cream corn (4 oz)

1) In a pot, bring the water, sugar and agar agar powder to a boil over medium heat. Continue to stir until agar agar powder dissolved. Add in milk and bring it up to boil again.
2) Divide mixture to half. One part add in the coco powder and stir until well combined and the other part with corn. Keep the corn part warm over low heat.
3) Strain the coco part into a wet mould and let it set in the refrigerator. Once it's set scratch the surface with a fork and then pour the corn mixture on top.
4) Chill and let it set completely before cutting into it. Serve cold.

Note : You can replace the milk with coconut milk.

Lovely agar2! You made me curious as to what kind of mold you used! Because it looked so long and I don't remember seeing such a long can before (can jar cut in half?).

I really like this recipe, but unfortunately I could not find Swallon Brand agar powder where I live, but we have different brand, could you please tell me how much of the agar powder do I need for this recipe. Thx.
