Here we stir a little melted chocolate into ricotta cheese for a cheesecake-like topping for chocolate wafer cookies.


  • 1/4 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, melted (see Tip)
  • 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta
  • 12 chocolate wafer cookies
  • 1 tablespoon 100% fruit jam, such as raspberry or cherry


  1. Combine melted chocolate and ricotta in a small bowl. Spoon a scant 1 tablespoon of the mixture on each chocolate wafer and top with 1/4 teaspoon jam.

To Make Ahead

Store airtight in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.


Tip: To melt chocolate, microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted. Or place chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.
