Panna Cotta with Raspberry Geleé

Part of the idea in making these were to try for something more subtle and smooth, but the candies  defeated my attempt to avoid making an instant-gratification sugary type of dessert. They were small, quick little punches though, so I think I can justify their existence within this little experiment-- Panna Cotta with Raspberry Geleé and candies made from leftover geleé.
Panna Cotta with Raspberry Geleé
(Segments of this recipe were adapted from recipes found on Epicurious)
-- This recipe is made over the course of about 1 - 2 days. First you make the Panna Cotta, then after it has been refrigerated for 8 hours (or overnight), you make the Raspberry Geleé to pour on top, which has to refrigerate for 12 hours (or overnight).

For the Panna Cotta:
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 1/2 tsp gelatin
1 1/4 c yogurt (I used a vanilla greek yogurt)
1 3/4 c heavy cream
3/4 c sugar

- In a small bowl combine the water, lemon, and gelatin and let sit for about 5-10 minutes
- In another bowl, combine the yogurt and 3/4 c of the cream
- In a saucepan over med-high heat, combine the remaining 1 c of cream and the sugar until the sugar has dissolved
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool just a little, then add the gelatin mixture and whisk to blend well -- then add this mixture to the yogurt/cream mixture and whisk
- Pour the mixture in your desired pan, or in my case, champagne glasses
- Refrigerate uncovered for about an hour, then cover and continue to refrigerate for the remaining 7 hours, or overnight

* If you plan to remove the panna cotta from a mold later, you want to oil the mold or pan with a neutral oil first
For the Geleé:
1 tbsp gelatin
1/2 c water
1 c sugar
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 c + 4 tbsp raspberry puree (In a blender, puree frozen raspberries that have been slightly thawed)

- Combine the gelatin and the water and let stand 5 minutes
- In a saucepan over medium low heat, stir the sugar and lemon juice until dissolved, bring up the heat and allow to boil for 12 minutes without stirring
- Remove sugar mixture from the heat and let sit 5 minutes, then add the puree and the gelatin mixture
- Pass the mixture through a sieve, then pour the geleé mixture on top of the panna cotta, then pour the extra into a lightly greased pan
-Let the sit overnight

- To make the candies, remove the geleé from the fridge and slice into the shape and size you desire
- Melt chopped dark chocolate (or chocolate chips) either over a double boiler or in the microwave, reserving a handful of chocolate
- Once the chocolate is melted, remove from the heat and add some of the reserved chocolate and stir in until melted -- do this a couple times, it allows the chocolate to set once again
- Toss the geleés in a bowl of sugar and dip into the chocolate, set on a piece of wax paper and set in the freezer or fridge for a minute or two to set
