Christmas panna cotta bites

Updated: Apr 13

Happy Sunday!

Today I'm sharing another festive treat: panna cotta bites!

They are veeery easy to make but also super tasty 😋

The crunchy crust is made with Corn Flakes and they are topped with Nutella, crushed Corn Flakes and Christmas stars 🤩

You don't even need a oven for this, I loved it.

If you want to make it too you can check out the recipe below!




  • 200g heavy cream

  • 2g gelatine leaves (1 leaf) *

  • 32g granulated sugar

  • vanillina (vanilla powder)*

--- TOPPINGS ---


  1. Put Corn flakes in a food processor and pulse a few times until the cereal turns into powder; melt butter in the microwave or on the stove.

  2. Prepare your muffin tin with 8 paper (or silicone) cups and place the gelatine leaf in a bowl with a small amount of cold water.

  3. In a bowl mix together melted butter and Corn flakes powder until you get the consistency of wet sand; press this mixture into the bottom of the muffin cups.

  4. Let it rest in the freezer for 10 minutes while making the filling.

  5. In a small saucepan add heavy cream, sugar, vanillina and whisk to combine.

  6. Turn on the stove and let it heat stirring occasionally (it doesn't need to boil!); then remove from the stove and dissolve the gelatine leaf in the warm mixture. Stir gently and check that the gelatine is completely dissolved.

  7. Let it cool for 5 minutes then transfer in the muffin cups over the Corn flakes crust.

  8. Place in the fridge to set overnight (or for at least 4-5 hours).

  9. Remove the panna cotta bites from the mould and garnish the surface with Nutella, crushed Corn flakes and Christmas stars.

  10. Enjoy :)


  • You can also use vanilla extract here but it might change the colour of the panna cotta a little bit since it's not white; also if you do, I would add it later when you remove it from the stove.

  • I only used 1 leaf of gelatine because I wanted a more creamy panna cotta so this means that it will take more time to set. If you are also using only 1 leaf I highly suggest leaving the panna cotta overnight in the fridge to set, but if you are in a rush you can use more gelatine (but not too much or you will taste it!!) or eat them inside the mould.

  • I used Corn Flakes but I think that for this recipe you can definitely use almost whatever cereal you have on hand.


If you make it let me know! :)
