Vanilla Rice Pudding & Chocolate Panna Cotta

Yes, I am giving away a box full of chocolate donated by Scharffen Berger in San Francisco. Head toward the end of the post for details on how to participate.

Back in June (wow that feels like an eternity...) I was part of a food blogging panel at Evo 10 with two wonderful ladies, Jane and Helen Jane. Yep, I am not making this up. We clearly sounded like a tribe "Hi! I'm Helen!" "And I am Jane!" "And I'm Helen Jane". They were handling the blogging part of our workshop and I was doing the photography part. Lots of fun and new friendships came out of this. Honest, comfortable and packed with belly laughing punctuated conversations.

There is a myriad of ways to blog and find your peace and balance. I don't think on it much. I am thrilled to make you discover bits about my home country, new recipes and techniques. It's a place for me to practice my crafts and hopefully to give you something enjoyable to look at and tempt you as well. I put a lot of hard work and dedication into this space and it has given me so much in return. Most of all, the possibility to connect with wonderful people all over the world and be able to live all sorts of experiences.

Vanilla Rice Pudding & Chocolate Panna Cotta

However, when Jane sent me an email asking me if I wanted to help her organize a little party during BlogHer Food this weekend, my first reaction was "ugh...I don't really have time to plan right now" but Jane came back with the words "what if it is a swanky chocolate filled little shingdig?". My reply? "go on, I'm listening..."

I have no idea how it all happened but before I knew it, I was part of a team of talented and generous ladies getting together venue, foods, libations and gifts for a party. I got worried that we would have to sell our souls to the Devil to make it happen but Jane & Kristen calmly said "We won't do any of that. Just sit pretty and eat your chocolate. Scharffen Berger is giving us tons for the party".

I am a milk chocolate kind of gal if you must know. I don't eat that much chocolate but when I do, it's the creamy kind that gets me all tingly. Add nuts and caramel bits and I will do just about anything...

Chocolate Panna Cotta

And that I did. And still do tonight as I am finishing packing for BlogHer Food. I can't wait to be there and see familiar faces and meet new ones. People I've been reading for years becoming even more real. I love that my schedule this weekend is a nice balance of work, play and unexpected.

There was a tad bit of planning to be done on the home front before heading out though. Mainly stocking the fridge with good foods and making sure that the important things were right in front of his eyes if B. opened up said fridge. There are now eight Vanilla Rice Pudding & Chocolate Panna Cotta facing him. Don't worry, he's got more nutritious foods to dig into.

I have no idea what got into me to combine panna cotta and rice pudding except my deepest love for both. I figured with the weather finally changing a bit we could try to get into Fall mood a little too and start simmering, stirring, chocolating again after the heat of the summer. It does feel nice to finally have that little crisp in the air as the sun rises over the water.

Vanilla Rice Pudding & Chocolate Panna Cotta

So I am not going to tell you that this post was made possible by the folks at Scharffen Berger who sent me chocolate because I would have made this recipe without them sending chocolate anyway. But...I would have used high quality chocolate like theirs nonetheless specifically because chocolate is in the front seat in this one.

What I am going to tell you is that they make some mighty fine chocolates and by using the 70% bittersweet chocolate bars, the panna cotta packed a good chocolate punch while remaining smooth as silk. To make sure you get the chance to feel the way we feel after sharing one of these, I asked if they'd let me have more chocolate to give away to one of you. I asked for "some chocolate" and they are sending a box full.

That's also why I love them. They know how good their craft is and are all about getting us addicted to it...eheheh. Did they ask or demand I post about them? Nope. I volunteered. That was a no brainer for me. Eat chocolate and giveaway some more on your blog. Make someone else happy.

Rice Pudding & Chocolate Panna Cotta

I am happy to be giving away a mixed box of Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder, 99% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate Baking Bar, 62% Cacao Semisweet Chocolate Baking Chunks and a few of their eating bars in various percentages courtesy of Scharffen Berger. To enter, you have until Monday October 11th, midnight Easter standard time to leave a comment on this post. (No anonymous comment). The winner will be picked at random by the closest person to me in the room (not kidding) - I'll be in San Francisco until Tuesday but I will make sure to get in touch with the winner.

Vanilla Rice Pudding & Chocolate Panna Cotta:
Serve 6 to 8

For the rice pudding:
1 cup rice (really the kind you like best)
1 1/2 cups (315ml) whole milk (I used raw)
1/2 vanilla bean, split open
1/2 cup (60ml) heavy cream
1/4 cup (50gr) sugar
Pinch of salt

For the chocolate panna cotta:
1 tablespoon powdered gelatin (2 sheets gelatin)
1/4 cup water
1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup honey
8 oz bittersweet chocolate
1 cup Greek yogurt

Cocoa nibs, dusting of cocoa powder and fresh whipped cream (optional garnish)

Prepare the rice pudding:
In a stainer, rinse the rice under cold water for a minute to remove some of its natural starch.
In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, bring the rice, milk, cream, sugar to a simmer. Scrape the seeds from inside the vanilla bean and add to the pan with the salt. Cook until tender, stirring occasionally for about 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the heat. Let cool for a few minutes and divide the pudding evenly among ramekins. Cover with a layer of plastic wrap until you are ready to pour the panna cotta on top of the rice pudding.

Prepare the panna cotta:
Place the water in small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over it. Reserve.
In a large heavy bottomed saucepan placed over medium heat, bring the milk, heavy cream, and honey to a simmer. When the cream is hot, remove from the heat and whisk in the chocolate until melted. Add the reserved gelatin and stir until it is completely dissolved. Add the yogurt and whisk vigorously until well blended.
Divide the mixture over the rice pudding ramekins. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes and then refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving to let the cream set properly.
Garnish with cocoa nibs and whipped cream if desired.

Full disclosure:
The chocolate, cocoa powder and cocoa nibs used in this recipe were given by Scharffen Berger at no cost.

Ohhh how I want this delicious-looking dish!! And I'd take some chocolate, too ;)

Heena @ Tiffin Tales said...

I want to eat this through my screen. Someone has to invent something to facilitate this! Beautiful as always Helene.

Nicolle said...

This looks amazing.

this week for dinner - jane maynard said...

what a wonderful post!

oh helene, I am SO delighted I was able to talk you into throwing our petite soirée together. every day the last week or so I wake up thinking, "what an amazing group of women I get to work with!" thank goodness chocolate was involved, to bribe you to join the ranks. ;)

love love love the photos and wishing you could bring some rice pudding and chocolate panna cotta on the plane. guess I'll just have to make it myself.

and, I'm saying this because I really think it and I haven't gotten any free chocolate (well, lately)...love SB's chocolate. the unsweetened cocoa is unreal. I'm addicted. their evil plan that you described totally worked.

Boot ~C said...

winning chocolate would be so fun!

mkd said...

I recently discovered Greek yogurt and my life will never be the same. Look forward to trying this recipe.

Kelley @ magnetoboldtoo said...

Drooling... can you send me a new keyboard for my laptop too? This one is now drowning.

Want.

And your mad photography skills.

lady_mason said...

I am pregnant and my baby wants this gift of chocolate. Thank you!

honeyfromflintyrocks said...

Looks absolutely scrumptious! I love, love, love your photography.
Blessings,

Panna Cotta has been a theme for me this week. I think the universe is trying to tell me something! Time to whip a little something up in the kitchen!

E said...

As if anyone would save no to chocolate. Count me in! That looks delicious.

j. said...

I love Scharffen Berger, and I think the chocolate panna cotta looks so impossibly smooth here, it looks fantastic.

MWT said...

Chocolate & pudding...yum! It's been a little while since I made pudding and I've never made panna cotta before but I'm definitely willing to try. Thank you Helen for sharing! I always look forward to your new posts.

Mandakini said...

WOW!! What a beautiful recipe. And the photos....sigh! You are truly brilliant! I SO BADLY want the Scharffen Berger chocolate!! I live in India, where we hardly get any great chocolates to bake with.. so usually I depend on people coming from the US or UK to get me a little! Which can never be enough.. so I hoard my good chocolate bars...:-)
Making the cinnamon rolls today! Happy Birthday to your niece...you both are lucky to have each other!
Thank you for making my days more beautiful with your posts.

Isabelle said...

What beautiful photos! The recipes look amazing too. And I would love some Schaffen Berger ... yum...

erica said...

Hi Helen, your blog is an inspiration! What beautiful compositions, both in photography and in recipes! Thank you for sharing your gifts :) Erica from Apricosa

ChichaJo said...

I certainly wouldn't say no to free chocolate! I don't know though if I could come up with creations a lovely as yours! It looks absolutely delicious and a panna cotta made with Greek yogurt sounds wonderful!

I have never tried Scharffen Berger before, they don't sell it where I am, but I have heard of them...I wouldn't mind winning some to give them a try!

Jessica said...

Oh pure, rich, sultry comfort. Your creations inspire me to be great, each and every day.

Merci.

Mandakini said...

Oh also, my husband gifted me The Essence of Chocolate, the book by Scharffen Berger, it is gorgeous! Their silky chocolate pudding is HEAVEN!

writebyte said...

You will know which country I come from when I say that the rice pudding part of this recipe is the one that draws me, then combined with excellent chocolate to make it sublime. Good ingredients are important at every level aren't they? I don't share the obsessive chocolate addiction that many people seem to have but can't deny the pleasure that a square of the extra dark, laden with cocoa solids gives as it melts over the tongue. As always your photography is exquisite. Lucky Mr B!

notyet100 said...

mmm tis looks so yum,..as always beautiful clicks,.

Frances said...

oh my goodness. hahahahah a box full of chocolate is the stuff dreams are made of.

love love your blog!

Kari said...

Fantastic! Another one of your recipes I need to try out :)

Julie the Alkaline Girl said...

I can feel the antioxidant powered chocolate already! Enjoy the weekend and meeting fellow bloggers- what fun indeed!

Azúcar said...

I would make the most amazing things with my Scharffen Berger: cocoa, mousse, Autumn torte. And I would probably invite you over (don't let that sway you.)

Lauren said...

This looks so amazing! I'm making chocolate ice cream sandwiches and raspberry ice cream tartufi so I'd love some new chocolate to experiment with. Have fun in San Francisco!

K and S said...

what a wonderful giveaway! and these pannecotta look so delicious!

Jessica Falksen said...

All I can think is: Mmmm....chocolate....

Okay, back to reality. I associate rice pudding with Christmas but I've never combined that treat with anything but frozen raspberries. I will definitely have to try this!

Christine said...

Hi Helen

Love your photography = )

Love dark chocolate = )

Hope I win = )

Would love to try any chocolate recipes with this chocolate.

Blessings
Christine

Michelle said...

looks delicious

phoebe said...

mmm.. this looks delicious!!! :)
can't wait to give it a try!!

Tengo un horno y sé cómo usarlo said...

Awsome photos, as usual. I'd love to have that chocolate. By the way, I am experimenting on not using gelatin to make panna cotta and as soon as I find the proper texture, I will add chocolate.
Hugs fron Spain.

Steph (desserts for breakfast) said...

Ah, Chocolate! :-) I am really intrigued by your combination of panna cotta and rice pudding--it makes total sense to me (I like eating vanilla tapioca pudding + chocolate pudding), even though I would have never thought to make it myself.

Em said...

chocolate+panna cotta+rice pudding...

sounds like a great combination i never would have thought of.

Carina said...

wow... I love rice pudding (probably comes from my mothers english background) and adore chocolate pannacotta. My solution to not being able to decide the chocolate/vanilla debate was to make chocolate rice pudding but my goodness LAYERING! My stomach is literally yelling at me to pack up, leave the office and head straight home to the kitchen. Mmmmm!

Amy said...

Wow! They are really generous in giving away all these chocolate! Just like you Helen! :) My husband and I (and everyone else in the family) are all time chocolate lovers! It'll be fabulous to win this! ^^

Megg said...

This recipe sounds delicious! Yummy high quality chocolate.

Rina the Mama Bear said...

Yum. Bookmarking!

Elena said...

Chocolate is one of those things that really gets me going when the autumn chill hits in full glory here in Nordic. I even made this non-commercial service (pralinkartan.se on web and pralinkartan on mobile via the Layar app) where you can find nearby shops (mostly in Sweden) that sell hand made chocolate. Just because of my love to chocolate.

Chef to be Cleo said...

It looks absolutely delish. I loves me some chocolate and rice pudding. :-)

Megan said...

Yummm, those look phenomenal! I'm definitely going to have to get into some chocolate when I get home... there's a long list of chocolate-flavoured desserts calling my name, and this one just got added. Mmm.

Rute said...

What an interesting mixture!
Would be great to try that chocolate! Since I´m never very lucky in this kind of contests I´ll just try to find it here arround me :)

Meeri said...

You have inspired me to take up photography, thank you for your beautiful pictures!

abc said...

I LOVE Scharffen Berger chocolate! I even went on a tour of their factory in Berkeley before it closed. If you are in SF and have extra time, come visit Berkeley!

audrey han said...

hmm... i tried to leave a comment earlier but it somehow got erased. i think i was rambling on and on about how your treats are such a tease for me to see in all its decadent glory but never for me to taste, particularly when they are made from chocolate. needless to say, i absolutely love your stuff.

madelaine said...

"smooth as silk" - Helen, that sounds divine!
I'd love to be in the running to win this prize!

♥peachkins♥ said...

I haven't tried chocolate panna cotta before! that looks scrumptious!

StaceyBerlin said...

Chocolate Panna Cotta sounds fabulous! And your pictures are gorgeous, as always. It´s getting cold and blustery here.. my chocolate consumtion is increasing dramatically so I´d love to recieve some Scharffen Berger Chocolate!!

Seema said...

I was going to comment about the delicious cinnamon rolls last week. those got gobbled up quick. But if commenting here allows the possibility for chocolate, all the better.

Juliana said...

This dish looks heavenly and a whole box of chocolate would be amazing! Have fun at BlogHer Food- I wish I could be there.

Jessica @ How Sweet said...

This looks like a must try!

Jenn said...

yummy! I love their chocolate.

Jennifer said...

I adore your pictures and perspective - and we made your ginger ice cream the other day - fabulous! So happy to not have to stand over a hot stove, coddling a custard. Et j'aime chocolate!

Kate said...

This looks so good...oh man. And it's almost hot chocolate season here.

Michelle said...

I absolutely adore rice pudding and I think the chocolate panna cotta is just an amazing addition. Thanks for your inspiration and recipes!

ahmcguffin said...

I have no idea what made you combine these two recipes either! But I'm glad you did, looks wonderful!. (But your photos and recipes always do look wonderful.) This one is truly comfort food. A chance to win chocolate? Yes, please!

Phoo-D said...

Tasha said...

Your photos are beautiful! I can't wait to make this recipe (and a little chocolate prize to get me started wouldn't hurt ;) )

Karine Keldany said...

Hello Helene. This recipe sounds more than yummy. I will definitely try it. I love chocolate deserts and basically anything with chocolate. I just made yesterday 75% chocolate and beet cupcakes. They were amazing.

Anyways, have fun at the Blog her food event. Wish I could be there. I dream of attending one day. It is a long way from Montreal. Wish we had interesting events like this in Canada. There is not much about food photography here. You basically have to teach yourself. hehehe. Would you be willing to have a webinar maybe for women around the world like myself who want to learn about food photography? I would be game. You just need a webcam and skype. :)
Just an idea.

LuckyLadyPhoenix said...

Yay! Yummy chocolate would be awesome. I'm looking forward to using it!

Tricia said...

Jessica said...

Mmm, Scharffen Berger is the best. Robert Steinberg will be missed forever, but how lovely that his memory can live on through desserts as beautiful, comforting, and delicious as this one!

Megan said...

I love panna cotta but have never had a chocolate one. I'll have to try this dandy little recipe out.


I cant wait for Blogher Food and the La Petite Soirée. It falls on my birthday and I get to party with all you fabulous women!!! AND EAT CHOCOLATE!

Great giveaway too! See ya there!

OH MY GOSH, THIS IS THE BEST GIVEAWAY EVER!!! I love chocolate & chocolate desserts, and always spend more than my budget really allows on buying nice chocolate. I have yet to make panna cotta, but it's been on my to-do list! This looks lovely!

momgateway said...

jacqui said...

I love this combination and I love chocolate! Beautiful images, as always!

A said...

Yum, chocolate and rice pudding...perfect combination. Why didn't I think of that?? SB is my go-to chocolate for almost everything and, given that my stock has been greatly depleted due to my many experiments in the kitchen, the timing for this is perfect.

Anna said...

Gorgeous! Sometimes I wish I didn't love chocolate so much, but I would be thrilled to win!

Laura said...

I love panna cotta but never mae a chocolate one, now I will have to, yours look amazing!

I love Scharffen Berger, it is my chocolate of choice when I nee a little "lift".

Sudhana said...

Hooray panna cotta! Never tried a chocolate version, but I will now :)

cathy said...

I just want to say, I'm not much of a commenter, cuz I always think I'd come off as a crazy person, saying how much I love your blog, but I do! You always have such amazing things! I just started reading it a bit ago, but thanks so much for the inspirations!

Brilynn said...

Can you believe that the chef I used to work with was highly allergic to chocolate? What kind of life would that be? A sad one... I always made sure to eat twice as much to make up for what he was missing.

Belladonna1975 said...

I just recently discovered your blog and I have to say that everything you photograph is simply beautiful. I will enjoy following you! OOoo, and I love chocolate too! ;)

Karissa said...

This looks delicious! I have a question of ingredient substitution. I live in Morocco, and I have NO clue where to get gelatin. Any suggestions on how I could adapt the recipe without gelatin?

Quinn said...

You never cease to amaze me Helene, love Arroz con Leche and love Panna Cotta and especially love anything with chocolate. I would have to make this for a coming dinner with a few good friends to impress. And I will tell them I am no inventor but the talented Helene Dujardin who writes mytartlette.com did!

Madeleine said...

It's my birthday today so hopefully the chocolate gods will cooperate! Bisous

Rona Y said...

That looks delicious! I'm a recent convert to the deliciousness of rice pudding, and I need to try this recipe!

Jenni said...

How I do love chocolate, this looks delicious!

blurred.visions said...

I absolutely can't wait to make this! Unfortunately, I am in college now, so the baking opportunities are relegated to brownies and cakes from a box, at best. How sad.

Jess said...

Mmmmm Scharffen Bergerrrrrr. That panna cotta looks amazing.

Patti said...

Chocolate? Would I love to win some chocolate? ABSOLUTELY!!

Please?!!

patricia1_may@yahoo.com

Julia said...

If only I was near my kitchen, I would make this right now! And if I had a stash of SB, my husband would be pushing me into the kitchen. Haha! I've waned to try my hand at panna cotta, but being pregnant has taken precedent for my culinary adventures. But, I'm away from the kitchen because we just had our first! Hallelujah and back to the kitchen with this recipe for me!

Rivka said...

I LOVE Scharffen Berger chocolate, especially those lovely nibs. Awesome!

Interesting combination, Helen! I'd like to try it myself with some Scharffen Berger!

Lorah said...

I have to try this recipe! I love panna cotta and my husband loves rice pudding.

Anna said...

I've tried (and even made) regular panna cotta before, but never the chocolate variety. Although I imagine it would be even more delicious than the original because, c'mon, chocolate makes everything better!

Lorah said...

I have to try this recipe - I love panna cotta and my husband loves rice pudding :)

Charlene said...

OMG!! This dessert looks so good, I'm tempted to lick my screen!! Would love to get the chocolate to try this recipe!!

You have put together two of my favorite things in the world. There is a bakery by my house here in Chicago that makes incredibly decadent rice pudding...I have to shut my eyes (metaphorically) every time I drive by!

Lana @ Never Enough Thyme said...

Did you say "heaven in a bowl?" No, it was chocolate panna cotta and rice pudding. Hmm...same thing?

maureen said...

Naina Redhu said...

Wow! Yes please to free chocolate - I'd go anywhere for free chocolate - especially when it makes the stuff you make so luscious - the way you describe it has my mouth watering. Lovely pictures as always - composition, lighting - lots to learn from you. Thank you for sharing.

Elena said...

That's amazing....I just love your recipes and photos...You always makes me crave for your cooking!! I'm a big fan of yours, you inspire me. Really :)
I'm new on blogging so I'll be here posting a lot.
Lots of kisses!

Meg said...

You always leave me with the biggest desire to live somewhere where I can find some of these ingredients (ie: cocoa nibs, marvelous gourmet chocolates, etc) I'd love to get in on some chocolate action.

And if you need any volunteers from the peanut gallery....count me in!

anne said...

so inspiring ...

Chocolate is the key to almost every girl's heart, I think. Thanks for the delicious looking recipe!

I am not normally a rice pudding fan but this might be the thing that would sway me in that direction! Anything's better with chocolate and this looks divine.

Hmmm..... wow! Leave it to Helene to make my favorite desert (rice pudding) even better by adding chocolate. Why didn't I think of that???? I will have to make this one, and the sooner the better.

I would never thought of combining rice pudding and pots de creme, what a genius idea!
I love their chocolate, and this chocolate would be so precious now that Fall is coming
Have fun at the party :)

I've never seen chocolate panna cotta before. The usual white/vanilla custart scares me away, but chocolate I just might have to try.

Sharing chocolate with others is perhaps the greatest act of generosity!

I feel stupid writing here that I've never made a panna cotta but the creaminess n beauty of it always asks me to try making it. Will definitely give this one a try since it has chocolate in it and you can never go wrong with a chocolate!

In all honesty, I'm not usually a huge rice pudding fan... but this looks awesome!
