Panna cotta is a traditional Italian dessert made from cream, sugar and gelling agents. Its name, nata cocida in Spanish, refers to its production process consisting of boiling the cream together with the sugar and removing it from the heat to add the gelatin. We take advantage of this process to add white chocolate to give it a different taste.
- 500 gr of whipping cream
- 300 grams of whole milk
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 60g sugar
- 180g white chocolate
- 4 sheets of gelatin
- 15 cookies
- a knob of butter
- Heat the milk and cream together with the vanilla essence in a saucepan. Add 40 grams of sugar and stir so that it does not stick to the bottom.
- Wait until it boils and remove from heat. When it cools down for a few minutes, add the white chocolate and the gelatin sheets previously hydrated in cold water. Stir until the chocolate melts.
- Break up some biscuits and mix together with the melted butter. Arrange at the bottom of a glass and freeze for a few minutes to solidify. Add the milk and white chocolate mixture to the glass and leave to cool for a few hours in the fridge with plastic wrap attached so that an unpleasant skin does not form.
- Toss in a frying pan the red fruits with the sugar (20 g). Stir until it has a jam-like consistency.
- Once it's cold, serve the panna cotta with the red berries and a few mint leaves to garnish.
