Panna Cotta is an eggless dessert that is easy to prepare and totally irresistible. This version with chocolate is by far my favorite way of making panna cotta. It is a smooth, silky, creamy chocolaty dessert, perfect to end any meal.


You can serve panna cotta directly from the molds or invert onto a serving plate for a more elegant presentation. Adding the chocolate syrup on top takes this panna cotta to a whole new level, simply hard to resist. Garnish panna cotta as desired with fresh berries or nuts  and enjoy.
