Christmas panna cotta bites
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!
--- CORN FLAKES CRUST ---
80g Corn flakes
40g melted butter
--- PANNA COTTA ---
200g heavy cream
2g gelatine leaves (1 leaf) *
32g granulated sugar
vanillina (vanilla powder)*
--- TOPPINGS ---
crushed Corn flakes
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.
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.
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.
Let it rest in the freezer for 10 minutes while making the filling.
In a small saucepan add heavy cream, sugar, vanillina and whisk to combine.
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.
Let it cool for 5 minutes then transfer in the muffin cups over the Corn flakes crust.
Place in the fridge to set overnight (or for at least 4-5 hours).
Remove the panna cotta bites from the mould and garnish the surface with Nutella, crushed Corn flakes and Christmas stars.
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! :)
