In a small saucepan stir together the gelatin and cold water; let stand 5 minutes. Heat and stir over low heat until gelatin dissolves.
Meanwhile, in a blender container or food processor bowl combine cottage cheese, cream cheese, sugar, and cocoa powder. (If using the blender, add 2 or 3 tablespoons of the milk to make blending easier.)
Cover and blend or process until smooth (1 to 2 minutes). Stop to scrape sides, if necessary.
Add milk, vanilla, and warm gelatin mixture. Cover and blend or process until combined.
Chill mixture, stirring occasionally, until mixture mounds when spooned (about 30 minutes). Spoon mixture into 6 dessert dishes. Cover and chill in the refrigerator 4 hours or until firm. Makes 6 servings.
Make Ahead Tip
  • Chill up to 24 hours.
