Ricotta cheese is lightly sweetened and mixed with chopped dark chocolate. Dip into it with your favorite store-bought biscotti or bake a batch of sturdy homemade cookies. A platter of fresh fruit, such as grapes and peaches, adds a light element to the meal.

    I love this recipe. Super easy, just sweet enough. I always make it the day after we finish a lasagne, out of the leftover ricotta.
