This delicious White Chocolate Panna Cotta is super easy to make making it the perfect make ahead dessert that’s sure to impress!
I hope you’re all having a great week so far?
I have a delicious dessert for you today, white chocolate panna cotta. Panna cotta ‘cooked cream’ is one of my favourite Italian desserts. It’s unbelievably easy to make and can be adapted with so many flavourings; vanilla, coffee, citrus, chocolate….whatever you desire.
The cream is heated with sugar and gelatin then poured into ramekins or moulds to cool. It makes for a perfect make ahead elegant dessert that’s great for entertaining or for a romantic evening at home.
For Valentine’s Day I wanted something elegant and romantic that I could prep in the morning so there was no work involved at the end of the meal. Panna cotta was the obvious choice but to try something new I added white chocolate. It worked perfectly and was utterly delicious, it’s my new favourite way to make it!
What’s your favourite dessert? Let me know in the comments below.
It’s safe to say I’m totally addicted to this dessert. It’s fantastic anytime of the year but especially in summer because it’s so light an delicate. Add some citrus flavours such as orange or lemon and it’ll be super refreshing too. I can tell this will be a regular throughout the summer for me.
