Ingredients

Chocolate Cream

  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons Kahlua optional

Espresso Panna Cotta

  • 1/2 cup whole milk separated
  • 2 teaspoons plain gelatin powder
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons instant espresso
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chopped

Mascarpone Cream

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup Mascarpone cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Whole coffee beans for garnish

Instructions

Chocolate Cream

  • Place the cream, chocolate and honey in a medium saucepan set over medium-low heat. Stir until smooth and incorporated. Whisk in the cocoa powder and Kahlua.
  • Place 3-4 wine glasses at a slant in loaf pans. Carefully pour the chocolate mixture into them. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours until set.

Espresso Panna Cotta

  • Place ¼ cup of milk in a small shallow bowl and set it in a larger bowl filled with hot water. Sprinkle the gelatin over the milk, allowing gelatin to melt.
  • In a medium saucepan set over low heat, bring the remaining ¼ cup of milk, heavy cream, espresso, and sugar to a low boil, and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove coffee-cream mixture from heat and whisk in the vanilla and gelatin until combined. Allow the mixture to come to room temperature, then pour over the set chocolate cream.
  • Refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours.

Chocolate Ganache

  • Combine cream and chocolate in a double boiler, whisking until smooth. (Alternatively, place in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30-second bursts, whisking between until smooth.)
  • Pour ganache over set panna cotta just before serving.

Mascarpone Cream

  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Using a hand mixer, whip until medium peaks form.
  • Pipe or spoon prepared mascarpone cream over ganache before serving, then garnish with whole coffee beans. Enjoy!
