Method

Step 1

Put the gelatine sheets into a bowl of cold water and leave for approximately 1 minute. When soft, remove and squeeze out excess water.
Add the gelatine to the chocolate mixture and whisk well.

Step 4

Pour into moulds
Put the moulds onto a tray and fill each one nearly to the top with the chocolate mixture.(pop air bubbles with toothpick)

Step 5

Chill
Put the panna cotta in the fridge and leave overnight to chill.

Step 6

Remove from the moulds and serve
Run a knife around the inside of each mould and dip in warm water to help release them.

Try to experiment by adding other ingredients into the receipe. i tried adding coconut flakes into the receipe to add texture and a bit of coconut flavor it turned out ok.
