Chocolate panna cotta, Panna cotta recipe with milk

Panna cotta is a rich and creamy Italian dessert that is made with cream, sugar and gelatin in a mold with or without additional flavorings. This wiggly jiggly dessert is tastes like eating ice cream in unfrozen form. So I decided to make something really simple yet delicious one to match the occasion so created a heart shaped chocolate panna cotta without using cream. Yes this pana cotta recipe is made purely with milk and yet turned out to be perfect. This is my first on milk panna cotta and I should say I was skeptical to prepare it for many weeks as I was unsure about the result. To my surprise it turned to be really good so I am posting it today itself.

For the below recipe I bought few silicon molds from amazon which worked really great as the panna cotta did slide smoothly from it without any hassle. But if you don’t have such silicone cups you can use ramekins/ any cups available at home which are good to refrigerate. Also for the below recipe use only whole milk as the panna cotta needs to creamy, then I used unflavored gelatin powder for the below recipe. If you don’t have chocolate morsels/ chips, you can chop chocolate and use it or try using just cocoa powder too.

On the whole chocolate panna cotta is super easy and simple to make dessert which will just go side by side the heart shaped pizza recipe that I posted yesterday. So lets get to the making!

Beginner tip:

  • Measure correctly for best results.
  • Use only whole milk for creamy texture.
  • Never let the milk boil/ allow it to get too hot as it wont set things right.
  • Refrigerate panna cotta mixture for at least 5 hours.

Ingredients
  1. 1. Milk – 1 ¼ +2 tbsp
  2. 2. Chocolate Chips/ morsels – ½ cup
  3. 3. Sugar – ¼ cup
  4. 4. Vanilla syrup – ½ tsp

  6. 6. Melted butter – 1 tsp
  7. 7. Cocoa powder – 1 tsp (for garnish)
  8. 8. Raspberries – 5 (optional)
Note
  1. * 1 cup = 235 ml
Instructions
  1. In a pan/ pot add milk and let it get hot but not too hot or boil. Now take ¼ th of the heated milk in a small bowl and keep it aside. When the milk is heated add sugar and put off the flame. Now stir well until the sugar dissolves. Now keep the heated milk aside.
  2. Now to the ¼ th cup of milk add unflavored gelatin powder and mix it well. It will not dissolve and it will be lumpy which is fine but just mix it really well. Set aside for 5 minutes. Now to the pan of heated milk add chocolate chips and stir it well until it melts completely and combines well with milk. Now add vanilla syrup and gelatin milk mixture to the pan. Now switch on the flame and keep it low. You will see the gelatin dissolving now put off the flame. Remember the milk should be heated lightly but it should never boil. Now take the panna cotta mixture from the stove. Now arrange the cups/ ramekins or silicone cups. Since this is a valentines day recipe I am using heart shaped molds but you can use any shape cups you like. Now grease the molds with melted butter. Now pour the panna cotta mixture in the molds and wrap it gently either with foil paper/ cling wrap. Refrigerate it for at least 5 hours or overnight. I usually keep it overnight as it gives best results.
  3. After 5 hours or overnight remove it from the fridge. Run the bottom of the cup/ mold in hot water for just 30seconds and then invert it gently on a plate and it will slide gently. You can also run a knife in the edges of panna cotta then invert the mild onto a plate. If you have used chocolate morsels/ pieces of chocolate in the milk then you will find chocolate as base and the top will be wiggly jiggly panna cotta. Now dust little cocoa powder through a seive and place few raspberries and mint as décor and serve it to your loved ones.
