There were so many recipes out there, and I wasn't going to do something where I would have to run to the store, especially since we have hit our $25 for the week. Other recipes called for raw eggs and I didn't want to do that. Several called for maple syrup, honey, or sugar, generally when using unsweetened cocoa. Many called for fat-free this or low-fat that, but low-fat foods are just disgusting and unhealthy, so we won't have any of that in our house.
Because we'll be making plenty of cheese in the future and we'll have a lot of ricotta to eat, I thought that I'd research for a few more ricotta desserts. I haven't tried them out, but here are some to choose from, from various other ricotta-loving bloggers and bakers out there.
Coffee and chocolate mousse, using just ricotta, dark chocolate, honey & instant coffee.
Orange ricotta mousse with orange caramel, which just sounds and looks decadent.
Ricotta fluff, with amaretto and rum.
Hindu Cheese Dessert, with cottage cheese and cardamom.
Ricotta Vanilla Cream, with just a few ingredients.
Warm honey and cinnamon over ricotta, which is exactly what it sounds like.
Balsamic Strawberries with ricotta, with basil garnish.
Or, you could put ricotta in crepes with berries for either dessert or breakfast.
