  • Place boiling water in a small bowl. Sprinkle gelatin powder over water and stir until dissolved. Stir gelatin mixture into white chocolate mixture until smooth.

  • Ladle white chocolate mixture into six 1/2-cup ramekins. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until set, about 4 hours.

  • Combine strawberries, orange juice, and 2 teaspoons white sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, until strawberries have softened and mixture has a syrupy consistency, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.

  • Spoon some stewed strawberries over each ramekin to serve.

Cook's Note:

Substitute vanilla extract for the vanilla bean paste, if preferred.

Panna cotta is one of my favorite desserts and with the addition of white chocolate it makes it even more decadent! So easy to make but yet elegant enough for company or a fancy dinner. I used half of a vanilla bean (just cut is in half and then scraped out the seeds and added them to the cream and threw the bean in there as well). I didn't measure the gelatin just used 1 of the little Knox gelatin packets which I guestimated was about 1-1/2 tsp. It set up perfectly and the stewed strawberries were a delicious topping for this. Will make this one again. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Read More

I made this but not with the strawberries as the ones at the store were awful. I had some fresh blueberries from my little bush so I made a sauce out of them and strained out the seeds and served it with that and a few fresh berries. I did make a couple of small changes to the recipe. I used Vanilla Extract to taste. I bloomed the gelatin in 1/2 cup of cold milk which was added to the cream mixture after the sugar melted as it seemed like too much gelatin for such a small amount of liquid. I did not use the water. I used a little more sugar and little less chocolate and I added a tablespoon or so of white vinegar to give it a bit of tartness. (A recipe trick I learned from some cooking show). Makes it taste a bit like buttermilk panna cotta without the buttermilk. My boyfriend loved it. I hate panna cotta so you'll have to take his word for it. He is the expert and he was licking the molds. Me I hate the taste of boiled milk so I can't judge a good one from a bad one. I will be making this for him again. Next time I'll try the strawberries. Thank you. Read More

Wonderful dessert. I doubled the sauce for the top and substituted Splenda for the sugar. No one knew the difference regarding the sugar. Most likely due to the white chocolate. The vanilla paste was really expensive so I just used regular extract. I splurged this week and plan to make it again with the vanilla paste. I think that will give the custard base a little more zing. Read More
