Homemade gifts for Christmas are great. They are full of personality and love and you just could not get them anywhere else.
Last year, I made boxes of Nama Chocolate for my pals in the office as Christmas gifts and they loved it. This year, I decided to continue with the practice but instead of chocolate, I made this sweet, creamy and flavourful caramel sauce. Vanilla pod or extract is usually added to make caramel sauce but I chose to use dark rum for the extra flavour and kick.

Panna Cotta literally means “cooked cream” in Italian. The traditional Italian custard dessert originated from the north of Italy and often credited to the Piemonte region, the birthplace of fine Barolo and Barbaresco wine.
The Italian dessert is always compared and some times confused with the French Crème Brûlée.
Both have rich flavour and silken custardy texture but Panna Cotta is made without eggs – just cream. Beyond cream, all you need to make it is sugar, gelatin and vanilla.
