Valentine's Day Dessert
With Valentine's day only a few weeks away it's time to start thinking about the day of love. This year it is on a Saturday so there is no excuse not to do something special! I know a lot of people feel that it is very commercialised, but personally I think it is what you make it. If you want to go all out then fair enough, but just a cosy night in with a special home cooked meal, a film and cuddles is all I want.
When Sainsbury's shared their easy peasy make your own Panna Cotta mix with me, I knew it would be a fool proof dessert to serve on Valentines day. If cooking/baking isn't your forte or you're lacking in time then this is definitely for you!
You simply bring some double cream and milk to the boil and stir in the Panna Cotta mix, pour into your moulds and then leave them to set in the fridge. They are absolutely delicious, very creamy but light in texture. Perfect after a heavy meal (I'm dreaming of steak or a mushroom risotto..yum!).
Serve with some fresh berries or make a little fruity sauce to top.
N:B - Sainsbury's kindly sent me this mix to try. As always all opinions are my own and are honest.
