Sweet Ricotta Dip with Chocolate Recipe

Sweet ricotta

This light dessert is so easy to make, doesn't require any cooking, and is quite the crowd-pleaser.

It was created in a pinch when I was to bring a dessert to a friend's apartment for a potluck. It was too hot outside to bake, but I wanted to do something with chocolate. I had some ricotta in the fridge but nothing else. With some quick thinking, I had created the perfect dessert to bring, and I only had to pick up some freshly baked almond cookies. 


  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar, plus more to taste if necessary
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped


In a small bowl, combine all ingredients until well-mixed. Taste and add more sugar if you would like it more sweet. Just remember what kind of cookie you will be serving the ricotta with — if it's very sweet, you probably don't want to make the ricotta overly sweet.
