This sour cream jello also referred to Birds Milk Recipe (Ptichye Moloko) consists of a creamy jello-like base with a shiny chocolate layer. 

Don’t be intimidated by the overwhelmingly amount of sour cream used. The sour cream taste isn’t overpowering as it’s diluted with a gelatin mixture and then covered with a silky chocolate layer.

You can undoubtedly divide the recipe in half or double the recipe upon your preference. This recipe makes a good-sized batch so plan accordingly. They also make perfect little desserts for weddings and parties so disposable cups come in handy but even squared glass dishes would work for bulk gatherings, just slice into squares. A big thanks to my aunt who shared the recipe.
