Espresso Flavored Milk Chocolate Panna Cotta

Espresso Flavored Milk Chocolate Panna Cotta


Ingredients
Panna cotta:
1/4 cup water
1 3/4 cups heavy cream, divided
6 ounces milk chocolate (about 40%), finely chopped
1 envelope powdered unflavored gelatin (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
11/3 cups whole milk
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
4 teaspoons instant espresso powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Garnish:
Unsweetened whipped cream
Grated milk chocolate


Preparation

 
1. Have ready six martini glasses or slope-sided 8-ounce coffee cups. Pour water into small bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over water and set aside to soften for 5 to 10 minutes.

2. In large saucepan, bring 1 cup cream to boil over medium-high heat. Remove pan from heat and add chocolate, swirling pan to completely cover chocolate with hot cream. Let stand for 3 minutes to melt chocolate. Gently whisk mixture until smooth and well-blended.

3. Combine remaining cream, milk, sugar and espresso powder in medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar and espresso powder are dissolved. Raise heat to medium-high and bring to boil. Remove from heat and slowly pour hot cream mixture into chocolate mixture while whisking constantly, until well-blended. Whisk in softened gelatin and vanilla, until gelatin is completely melted.

4. Strain mixture through fine-mesh sieve into pitcher or large glass measuring cup with pouring spout and fill glasses or cups. Refrigerate until set, loosely covered, about 6 hours.

5. Garnish each dessert with whipped cream and a sprinkling of grated milk chocolate.

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
