Ingredients

PANNA COTTA

1 1/4 c
heavy cream
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c
brown sugar
1 pkg
dark chocolate chunks
1/2 pkg
raw cranberries
1/2 c

1 c
crushed graham crackers
1 stick

1 dash(es)
cold water
1 pinch
cinnamon, mixed with sugar

vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Take all the crust ingredients and combine in a bowl. I like to mix with my hands. Then press into the bottom and sides of a greased, ceramic pie dish.
2
Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Then remove and set aside.
3
In one small pot, combine water, cranberries, sugar, brown sugar. Cook for 5 minutes on med.
4
Then add chocolate and stir until melted. Remove from heat.
5
When removed from heat, add rum. Set mixture aside. If you like a less strong rum taste, add with the chocolate and let it cook out some.
6
In another pot, add heavy cream and gelatin. Keep on a low heat and just until the gelatin mixes into the cream.
7
Then add the cream mixture to the chocolate cranberry mixture, and pour into the cooled pie crust.
8
Refrigerate overnight. Serve with whipped cream. Best with either coffee or Earl Grey tea.
