Fancy Dessert Can Still Taste Like Childhood


There’s no way to describe Panna Cotta except as milk jello. And that is not appetizing to people, apparently. This, however, tastes exactly like childhood. I used my favorite childhood cereal and regret nothing. Graham is eagerly awaiting a version that uses Blueberry Toast Crunch. The process is the same no matter which cereal you use. Make it taste like your childhood, then tell me all about it.

Begin by soaking 2 cups of your favorite cereal with 2 cups of heavy whipping cream and 1 cup milk (almond works well here, too). You want this to sit for at least 15 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup milk with one envelope of gelatin mix. Stir well.

When your cereal milk has soaked up all that good flavor, strain and pour liquid into a saucepan set to medium heat. Add 1/2 cup sugar and bring to a boil. Stay close when this milk mixture is on the heat. Add gelatin-milk mix and stir until incorporated. Cook for 1 minute then remove from heat and stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla.

Pour mixture into ramekins, glass containers or silicone muffin pans. I sprinkled a few fruity pebbles into each serving while it began to set. Let panna cotta come to room temperature naturally, then move to fridge to cool for at least 4 hours. Serve without saying the words “milk jello.”
