Thermomix Chocolate Panna Cotta Recipe

Thermomix Chocolate Panna Cotta Recipe

How stunning does this recipe look? Based on the photo, you’d be fooled into thinking it was complicated to make, but this sumptuous free recipe couldn’t be quicker or easier. This is a decadent  (but not too rich) panna cotta that can be whipped up in literally less than 8 minutes, using just five simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen: cocoa, milk, cream, gelatin and sugar. What results is a silky smooth dessert that is guaranteed to impress.

The beauty of this recipe is definitely in it’s simplicity, which makes it a perfect last-minute dessert for unexpected dinner guests. And if you’re a little more organised than that, it will keep in the fridge for up to five days. The hardest part of this recipe is abstaining from eating it while it’s setting!
All panna cottas, and particularly this one, are made perfectly and easily in our naturally non-stick silicone dariole moulds. They slide right out when you’re ready to serve them as delightful little chocolate castles! And then the moulds can be thrown straight into the dishwasher, making the whole process super low-fuss. If you haven’t already got a set, you can purchase them in store or on our website here.

I love panna cottas! In fact, I’ve got Thermomix panna cotta recipes in most of my cookbooks.
