What ingredients for this recipe?

Only 6 ingredients for this chocolate panna cotta recipe! In addition, these are ingredients that you certainly already have at home ...

Pastry milk chocolate : it is used here melted in the cream. You can, if you prefer, substitute it with dark chocolate for a more full-bodied version ...

Liquid cream : only whole at 30% mg. It is the fat it contains that gives panna cotta their smoothness. It is used in panna cotta and ganache.

Granulated sugar : you will need little for this recipe. Adjust the amount according to your taste.

Gelatin : This is what makes the panna cotta hold together in a soft texture. It can be replaced by agar-agar, in this case, look closely at the dosage recommended on the packaging.

Dark chocolate pastry : It is used to make the chocolate ganache. We want it classic (not very full-bodied).

Praline : it's optional but I love it! It adds crunch and it's delicious.

How to make these chocolate panna cotta?

First, the gelatin is softened. In a saucepan, heat the ingredients for the panna cotta : milk chocolate, cream, sugar so that they melt. Add the drained gelatin, before pouring everything into dessert glasses.

The size of the glasses used for this recipe is classic. You can see it in my photo. It is sufficient from my point of view for this type of dessert.

Once the panna cotta has cooled down for several hours, add the ganache on top. To make it, we simply melt the dark chocolate and the cream. Then we add praline, and place in the refrigerator until tasting.
