Mocha Panna Cotta Topped with Coffee Liqueur Laced Topping and Raspberry Syrup

Beautiful desserts do not have to be time consuming or complicated. I developed based on inspiration from my first attempt at making Panna Cotta recipe (Click for recipe). Although the Panna Cotta is not sweet at all, the topping adds all the flavor and sweetness you need for this fab dessert.

Here is my recipe and how I made  this wonderful dessert:

Panna Cotta
1/2  cup heavy (whipping) cream
1 package unflavored gelatin
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
2 teaspoons  cocoa
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1. Place 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream in small saucepan. Sprinkle gelatin over cream; allow to stand for 5 minutes to soften gelatin.

2. Turn heat to medium; stir until gelatin dissolves, but cream does not boil, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add remaining cream, coffee granules, cocoa, salt and cinnamon. Continue to cook, stirring continuously until coffee granules have dissolved, about 3 to 5 minutes longer.

3. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

4. Pour into four stemmed glasses. Place in refrigerator until set, at least six hours.

Coffee Liqueur Laced Topping
1/3 cup heavy (whipping) cream, whipped
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons coffee liqueur

Place whipping cream in small mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat until small peaks form. Gradually add sugar while  continuing to beat. When stiff peaks form, fold in liqueur.

Raspberry Syrup
1/2 bag frozen raspberries, completely thawed, including  juices
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water

1. Place raspberries along with their juice, sugar and water  in a small sauce pan. Add sugar. Bring to a boil; stir until sugar is dissolved, about five minutes.

2. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

12 fresh raspberries
4 sprigs fresh mint leaves

1. Spoon just enough syrup to cover top of Panna Cotta.

2. Place a generous tablespoon of whipped topping in center of Panna Cotta. Drizzle with Raspberry Syrup. Garnish with a few raspberries and a sprig of mint.
