This dessert combines some of my favorite things - it's smooth and creamy, very chocolate-y and super quick and easy.
Chocolate Panna Cotta
1 3/4 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
2 Tbs Sugar (adjust depending on your taste or the sweetness of your chocolate)
2 oz finely chopped bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate
dash of salt
Sprinkle the gelatin over 1/4 cup of the cream, and leave to stand until softened - about 10 minutes.
Pour the remaining 1 1/2 cup cream into a small saucepan. Add the sugar and salt. Heat slowly until it just reaches the boiling point.
Remove from the heat, add the chocolate and whisk until smooth. Return to the heat and add the gelatin mixture. Heat gently until it is completely dissolved.
Pour into ramekins or stemmed glasses. Chill several hours or until set.
