Rich Dark Chocolate Pannacotta Pots

This dessert is a very easy to follow recipe that can be whipped up in a few minutes.
It is the basic Pannacotta base recipe with a little added indulgence for this special occasion, and served in an individual Kilner jar for a restaurant quality dish that is sure to impress your loved one.
Using a high percentage dark chocolate is the best choice for this dessert as the taste is smooth and rich against the cream in the recipe. Dark Chocolate is packed full of antioxidants too, so in a way, this dessert isn’t as sinful as you may think!
