100g Mortimer Dark Chocolate Powder
2 ½ leaves of gelatine
250ml milk

  • Pour the cream and milk together into a saucepan and heat until it starts to simmer.
  • Add the dark chocolate powder and stir until dissolved.
  • Remove the leaves of gelatine from the water, add to the pan and stir until dissolved.
  • Take the pan off the heat and allow to cool while stirring gently.
  • Pour into the ramekins and place cling film over the surface to prevent a skin forming.
  • Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours, until set.
  • Turn the individual panna cotta’s out.
