Hot Chocolate Panna Cotta - Tuesdays with Dorie

Delicious and easy to make, this dessert was another excellent chocolate-y choice for February from Dorie Greenspan's latest book Baking Chez Moi. 
It was cool and silky (I think I'm finally getting the hang of this agar-agar business!) and the milk and cream mellowed the bittersweet chocolate and cocoa so the flavour approached that of a comforting mug of rich and creamy hot chocolate. My family and I enjoyed this lovely dessert topped with dulce de leche whipped cream and grated chocolate. 

Visit here to see what the other Tuesdays with Dorie members made this week.

  1. Hi Zosia,
    More grated chocolate over the top! Nice! We love this panna cotta too, yummy!
    I see that you have no problem leaving your link at TWD. I am having issues leaving my comments and link at wordpress blogs lately, no idea why!

  2. Glad you enjoyed it. I wasn't a fan, but I seem to be alone in that.

  3. This was surprisingly chocolately (yum!)... and thankfully less jell-o-y. Dulce de Leche whipped cream as a topper sounds divine!

  7. Both of the February chocolate desserts were dangerously easy to make and consume. Both are company worthy. I am looking forward to what we make next month.

    1. I used 2g powdered (Now Foods brand). Seeing others' results, I'm convinced the gelling power varies with brand. And if acid and sugar also have a role in the gelling, then the type of chocolate, and even the cocoa powder, would affect the results. Thinking of this now, I think I was just lucky this time!
