Stir together the sugar and gelatin in a small saucepan; stir in the milk. Let stand for 2 minutes to soften gelatin. Set over medium heat; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture just begins to boil.


Remove from the heat. Immediately add chocolate chips; stir until melted. Stir in vanilla; cool to room temperature.


Beat whipping cream in a small bowl until stiff; gradually add the chocolate mixture, folding gently just until blended. Spoon into serving dishes. Chill until ready to serve. Garnish with sweetened whipped cream (if using).
