    Hungry?
    well i was .... i rarely make dessert these days but i felt like a break in routine so whipped up this dessert mmmmmm :cool:
    This one us ultra smooth and delicious, but strap on your epeen cos this dessert is RICH!!
    Shot glasses would be the perfect size (i just don't have enough) so i used the next smallest dessert dishes i had (It made 5 very decent sized servings that will take the most hardcore chocoholic 2 attempts to conquer and destroy a bowl)
    You'll need to make this ahead of time, which is perfect if you have guests coming over.
    There is literally 10-15 mins of prep & cooking involved.
    So if big rewards for bugger all effort is your thing then this is the one for you :thumbup: :D

    White Chocolate Panacotta

    Ingredients:
    • 180g (1 block) White Nestle chocolate
    • 2 cups (500ml) thickened cream
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 1½ teaspoons powdered gelatine

    What to do:
    • Place all ingredients, except water and gelatine, in a saucepan over medium heat until chocolate has melted.
    • Place boiling water in small bowl, sprinkle gelatine over and stir until dissolved. (this is really important its properly dissolved)
    • Combine well with chocolate mixture
    • Pour into 6-8 small ramekins or glasses and set in fridge for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight)

    Choc Fudge Sauce
    Makes 250mls (1 cup)
    Make in advance or serve warm.

    Ingredients:
    • 150gm chopped dark chocolate
    • 125ml (1/2 cup) cream
    • 2 tlb brown sugar
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
    • optional: 1 tsp of your fave liquor, kahlua, frangelico etc...

    What to do:
    • Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and stir over medium to low heat until chocolate melts and the ingredients are combined.
    • Remove panacotta from the fridge & drizzle a thin layer of the warm chocolate mixture on top. (The sauce will thicken as it cools.)
    • Serve with fresh strawberries / Glace cherries / broken meringue (for crunch) / or caramel thin shards.

    I prefer to eat straight away but you could put it back in the fridge if you like.
    Store in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to 1 week.
    A fudgy sauce perfect served with waffles and vanilla ice-cream and sprinkled with pecans.
    And just a spoonful stirred through a mug of hot or icy cold milk makes the most wonderful chocolate drink.

    Chocolate money :)

    Had my parents around for tea last night and made this for dessert, it was an absolute hit! I didn't find it too sweet but I soon regretted eating my serve in one sitting :lol:.

    I cooked this the other day for the wife.

    Added a dash more frangalico to the chocolate sauce as it's bloody rich.

    I emailed a link to this page to my mum last Friday and she made it on Saturday for her and her husband... She struggled through one, he devoured 2 and wanted more. I went around and had a teaspoon full and it was enough, nice though :thumbup:

    Looks awesome RETARD!

    hmmm... Panna or Brulee.... Such a tough choice, but panna cotta definitely wins on simplicity.

    The fudge sauce looks supremely wicked too... I have done a similar sauce to pour over profiteroles, add a dash of amaretto for great win. :D
