As we all know, calories in December do not count. Or at least don't count them....
On Sunday, I had my brother and mum over, as well as me of course and the other half and we ate an early Christmas feast!
As my family and friends know well, desserts that come from my kitchen might not be on the lighter side - but they always taste great!
I decided to play around with dessert this year and took my previously made panna cotta's recipe, shifted them slightly and Baileys* panna cotta were born! These are not designed for those driving shortly after!!
*I didn't use actual Bailey's, these were made with Lidl's version called St Margot, however if I called them St Margot Panna cotta's you would most likely be bewildered, unless of course you often shop in Lidl's that is....!
Makes 8 ramekins/ dariol moulds
160g caster sugar
420ml double cream
150ml cream liqueur
4 sheets gelatine or vegetarian equivalent
1) Place the gelatine in a bowl, cover with cold water and leave for 5 minutes or prepare as packet instructions
2) Meanwhile, gently bring to a boil the cream, milk, liqueur and sugar, until it feels smooth when stirring - do not boil, remove from heat when hot
3) Drain the gelatine, add to the cream mix, pour into mold's and chill for 4 hours or overnight.
**If made in dariol molds, please note they are feisty to get out but not impossible, garnish with chocolate flakes and a little chocolate sauce**
