Nesquick Neapolitan panna cotta

Nesquick Neapolitan panna cotta
Creating this Nesquick, Neapolitan panna cotta was quite frankly a genius brain wave baking moment (much like all the bakes I've shared on my blog recently). Nesquick quite frankly tastes like childhood and it's a product what still tastes just as good as an "adult". As a child Nesquick was something of a luxury in my house, I'm sure I wasn't the only one whose parents would grumble when there was no milk left, meaning Nesquick didn't always make it into the shopping trolley. 

I knew I wanted to make panna cotta as a recipe for Little blonde Life as it's such a great desert to add your own twist too. My idea originally was a Neapolitan version and the idea of adding Nesquick for flavour and colour worked amazing. I did also toy with the idea of angle delight, but Nesquick worked better. 

To make you will need:
750ml of double cream
750ml Milk (full fat)
3 x 12g sachet of powder gelatine 
2 x table spoons of chocolate nesquick
2 x table spoons of strawberry nesquick
1 x tea spoon of vanilla extract 
1 x table spoon of sugar

Chocolate layer 
  1. Bring to the boil 250ml cream and 250 ml of milk together in a sauce pan. (keep stirring with a whisk whilst this simmers) 
  2. Dissolve a sachet of gelatine in 2 tablespoons of boiling water (mix together in a seperate bowl until all the gelatine has dissolved). Note here gelatine doesn't smell nice at all.
  3. Add the gelatine to the cream & milk, keep whisking.
  4. Add the chocolate Nesquick powder and keep whisking. 
  5. Remove from the heat and pour into your mould, glass, bowl (basically what ever you wish to use to set your panna cotta in).
Leave each layers to set for around 2 hours each. (I know not the quickest of bakes, but each step only takes around 10 mins).

Vanilla layer
  1. Repeat steps 1 - 3
  2. Add the vanillia extract and sugar. (There's no need to add the sugar in the Nesquick layers)
  3. Top up your moulds of choice.

Strawberry layer
  1. Same as the chocolate layer but add the strawberry Nesquick powder instead of the chocolate. 
The recipe will make around 10 panna cotta's.

Enjoy the fact it's now defiantly ok to love Nesquick as an adult. Just make sure you stock up on extra milk for your tea.
