Valentine’s Milk Chocolate-Lavender Panna Cotta

Lavender is for “loyalty.” And a loyal following you will have once you serve this silky custard.

If you’re a novice at combining herbs with sweets, this is a safe place to start. The understated lavender bouquet adds a delicate floral suggestion, especially when paired with rich milk chocolate.
