Project: Mint Chocolate Panna Cotta

EN

Its been awhile that I’ve made a dessert. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to dessert it has to look fancy with the ‘oohs and ahhws’ effect. And of course it has to be delicious.

I’ve made panna cotta’s before and sometimes I have ‘eureka’ moments and this dessert is one of those moments. I love anything mintchocolate-ish and I don’t like to brag, but this dessert is a-ma-zing! What a great match!  

And maybe a great idea for the upcoming holidays?

P.S. Basic adapted with Gordon Ramsay’s recipe!


NL

Ik kan me niet herinneren wanneer ik voor het laatst een toetje gemaakt heb. Heel lang geleden dus. Maar wat toetjes betreft, het moet áltijd mooi uitzien want het oog wil ook wat toch? En uiteraard smaakvol.

Panna cotta’s zijn makkelijke en lekkere toetjes. Soms krijg ik echt opeens goeie ideeën. Net als deze: een mint chocolade panna cotta stijl! Ik hou sowieso van deze combo en ik wil niet graag opscheppen maaruh, dit toetje is héérlijk!

En misschien een idee voor de komende feestdagen?

P.S. basis volgens Gordon Ramsay’s recept! 
Da Recipe  serves 2:  250 ml cream, 50 ml milk, 2 tbsp. sugar, 2 sheets of gelatin, 2 Fisherman's Friend tablet + mint extract (1 tsp.), food coloring blue and yellow, few vanilla drops, dark chocolate

The first batch was too dark mint-ish so I suggest: 2x blue drops + 1x  yellow  drop = mint

No mint extract? Do not panic! You can use Fisherman's Friend, just add it while you are cooking the cream. 

I love stuff that wiggles ha.

To make chocolate shavings, just scrape with a sharp knife on top of a bar of chocolate. Careful for your fingers!


Da Steps:

  1. Soak gelatin in 2 tbsp. of water.  
  2. In pan goes: the cream, milk, sugar, Fisherman's Friend and stir and cook on low heat. The FF and sugar should have solved. Don't let it boil!
  3. Remove pan from heat and add in the soggy gelatin. Combine well. 
  4. Add food coloring and vanilla drops. Stir stir stir! 
  5. Let it cool off in the pan. Once cooled off pour it in plastic cups. 
  6. Let it chill in the fridge to set for at least 4 hours (mine went overnight
  7. When the panna cotta is all set, remove from the plastic cups. You can place the cups in a warm water bath for easy removal. 
  8. Serve with shaved chocolate and you're done!
Good luck!
