Serve the Panini with some fresh raspberries on the side, their slightly acidic taste compliments well with the bitterness of the chocolate.
Enjoy with a good cup of espresso or cappuccino.
Italian sweet sparkling like Asti spumante DOCG; Barolo chinato; Marsala ambra superiore.
If you are not really fond of raisins and candied fruits, you can always make this recipe by replacing the Panettone with Pandoro.
Panettone is the famous brioche-like Italian cake, a treat that was created more than 500 years ago at the Sforza's court in Milan. This superlatively moist and delicious specialty is great eaten just as it is, but it also makes a wonderful basis for many other dishes. For instance, you can try these Panini in the morning for breakfast or during a mid-afternoon break. The recipe can easily be made with twice the ingredients, so you might want to think of it if you are organising a party later on and so be one step ahead. One thing is sure: children will love it!
