Chocolate Yogurt Panna Cotta

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by sheepdoc

Adapted from a blogger's recipe which was for plain yogurt panna cotta (leave the chocolate out, add 1/3 cup honey). You can use any sort of fluid milk from skim to cream - the more butterfat, the creamier, and the more calories. I used 2 %. Good with fruit and whipped cream.

As written, not inspiring except to feed Weight Watcher dieters who could count it as dairy. How can you effectively adjust the sweetness prior to adding the yogurt? I used whole milk, does that account for the bland output? I thought this needed a much more distinctive chocolate, perhaps bittersweet. When I unmolded my panna cotta, it was bland. I could have sprinkled sugar on top (as I normally treat plain Greek yogurt), but if only the instructions had suggested to pour more Hershey's chocolate syrup over the panna cotta in a decorative design (as my photo shows)! This was an experiment, because this recipe was SO EASY, but I think I need to work a little harder for my chocolate panna cotta to suit me. Made for Rookie Recipe Tag.
