Just in time for Valentine's Day! This recipe goes much faster than I thought it would, especially if you buy the chocolate cups premade.
- Chocolate cups (make them yourself with melted chocolate and a cup form, or buy them premade at BJ's or the like)
- Cannoli Cream
- Raspberries or other fruit for topping
For one box (42 pieces) of chocolate cups, you need the following ingredients:
1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
1 cup heavy (whipping cream) + 1/4 c
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 metal mixing bowls, place one in the fridge/freezer before you start.
Mix the ricotta cheese and the 1/4 c of heavy cream in one bowl, put in the fridge to chill.
Whip the 1 cup heavy cream, cinnamon and powdered sugar in the cold bowl until medium-stiff peaks form.
Gently blend in the ricotta cheese mixture.
Cool in fridge for 30 minutes or more.
Pipe the ricotta-whipped cream mixture into the chocolate cups, top with fruit. Chill before serving. If you don't have a piping bag, use a plastic freezer bag with one corner snipped off (small snip or it makes a mess!)
If you have any cannoli cream and raspberries leftover, lucky you! Plop that cream on top of the raspberries and enjoy!
Other fruits to try...blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, mandarin oranges
