Kona Coffee Panna Cotta
Pannacotta... Don't be intimidated with the fancy name. Pannacotta is an Italian version of an eggless custard. Rich, creamy Kona Coffee infused pannacotta adorned with dark chocolate slivers...and it couldn't be any easier!
2 cups Whole milk
4 cups Heavy cream
3 tbsp. Instant Kona Coffee
6 fl. oz. Granulated sugar
1.5 fl. oz. Unflavored powdered gelatin
6 Martini glasses
Dark chocolate for garnish
Heat milk in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Sprinkle gelatin over the milk and allow to bloom, about 3 minutes. Do not boil.
Once the gelatin is dissolved, increase to medium heat and add in the heavy cream, instant coffee and sugar, stir to dissolve. Do not boil.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool, about 3 minutes, ladle into martini glass and refrigerate until set, about 7 hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, use a vegetable peeler on a block or bar of dark chocolate to make shavings. Garnish with the chocolate.
