Chocolate Ricotta

 Early in our February Instagram Photo Challenge, Rebecca posted a picture of some coco ricotta that looked soooooooo delicious!! When I asked for the recipe she told me that her husband had actually bought it. This inspired me to make up my own version using a batch of homemade ricotta! I hadn't tasted the one Rebecca had, so I had no idea what it tasted like or if my version was close. But since Rebecca described it as tasting like chocolate cheesecake I figured I could come up with something.  And I did! The recipe below makes a ton. Seriously. So unless you're having a party or plan on freezing it, you may want to halve it.

What You Need:
  • 1 batch of homemade ricotta (I'm guessing it makes about a pound, so you could substitute store-bought)
  • 8 oz chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 brick of cream cheese, room temperature
In your mixer, add all your ingredients and blend till smooth. Yep. Super-easy.

We dipped shortbread cookies in ours, but any sort of cookie (or maybe pretzels!) would be tasty, too!

Again, this made a ton (as you can see by the mounded soup plate-full). And for most normal people I'd tell you to freeze it, share with a crowd, or halve the recipe.

Or you could always invite my husband over. He cruised through ours in less than two days. He recommends just eating it with a spoon every time you pass by the kitchen. :)

And speaking of photo challenges, we've had so much fun this month with you on Instagram that we've decided to do another challenge in March! And since March is supposed to go in like a lion and out like a lamb, we've come up with a theme of opposites! Check out the list below, follow Rebecca (rocky127) and I (mkretch13) on Instagram, and tag your photos with #hmmphotoaday to join in on the fun! Can't wait to check them out!
