Gluten Free Chocolate Panna Cotta Style Dessert

Panna cotta, a rich Italian dessert usually made with cream. Our version is not quite as rich, we've toned it down and made it milk based rather than cream and also made it using dairy free using coconut milk, flavoured with some chocolate it is naughty and nice at the same time and also naturally gluten free.
