Black Sambo is one of the best Christmas Dessert, my family love it so much… We always prepare this on Christmas and you can even make this as a gift to your family friends.  Black Sambo Recipes are very affordable and easy to prepare.

Black Sambo is a two layered gelatin (you can also prepare a 4 layer) made of creamy milk and Chocolate. You can use circular shape molds or rectangular, we used a rectangular shape mold for this preparation.
