I have tried two other panna cotta recipes before this (one for green tea and the other for lemon) and this recipe was the best. I replaced the 1/4C grated dark chocolate w/ 1/4C unsweetened cocoa powder and I added 1t of pure vanilla extract. It came out beautifully and my family finished the entire batch in no time. This is one of the easiest desserts anyone can make and involves very little preparation time.

Really easy recipe. I used 1/3 cup sugar and increased chocolate to 100g.

This was super easy. Everyone in the family really liked it. I will definitely make this again. I'd add some coffee, orange or cinnamon to the chocolate in the future. I also will add a bit more chocolate and remove some sugar (but that's my taste, there was nothing wrong with the proportions as written).
