Recipe for Chocolate Amaretto Panna Cotta

Chocolate Amaretto Panna Cotta


  • One packet Knox gelatin
  • ½ cup whole milk (for blooming gelatin)
  • 1 ¾ cups heavy cream
  • ¼ cup sugar (or to taste)
  • ½ cup baking cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup amaretto


  1. Sprinkle the packet of gelatin on top of ½ cup cold milk. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat up cream and sugar (do not boil). Add cocoa a little bit at a time and stir thoroughly. Once sugar dissolves, pour over the bloomed gelatin. Stir until gelatin dissolves, and add ¼ cup of amaretto. Strain mixture to remove cocoa powder clumps – there will be clumps! Pour into mold(s) and refrigerate for 4 hours.
