Dark Chocolate Panna cotta

This is one of those recipes for when you are having a dinner party and are crunched for time for dessert and need to make it ahead of time. Its easy, not too sweet and delish!
Take 1 Package (about 1 tbsp) of unflavoured gelatin and mix it with about another tbsp of water. Let it sit for a couple of minutes.

In a saucepan, heat 1 Cup of Homo Milk over medium heat. Scrape the seeds from a vanilla bean and add them, as well as the whole vanilla bean into the milk. Add the gelatin mixture and allow the milk to come to a simmer. Once gelatin is combined in the milk, remove the vanilla bean and remove from heat. Set aside.

In a bowl microwave 5 oz of good quality dark chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until it is thoroughly melted.

Slowly pour the hot milk mixture over the melted chocolate and whisk to combine. Add about a 1/4 cup of heavy cream, whisk some more and strain through a sieve to remove all the bubbles.

Pour the chocolate mixture into ramekins and cool to room temperature. Once cooled refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.

Top with fresh whipped cream and shaved chocolate!
