“Delicate & cool with two kinds of chocolate for an easy but elegant & satisfying dessert. From those talented folks at Southern Living. Panna cotta needs to chill 24 hours before serving. I like to make in ramekins & invert the panna cotta onto serving plates in puddle of warm dark chocolate sauce. Make the dark chocolate sauce shortly before serving & drizzle it on the cold panna cottas immediately before serving. Garnish with mint sprigs if you want to gild the lily.”
