It’s so lovely when you like your neighbors. Granted, sometimes, I don’t think I like all of mine, but there are some awesome ones in my building! One couple who stands out is Todd and Melissa. I see Todd at least once a week as he picks up his bike from the garage/my music practice room, and Melissa is an excellent hostess who ALWAYS manages to have all the perfect little plates, utensils, and pretty finishing touches at every event she hosts.
This past week, Melissa made this dessert–she called it lazy cannoli. It was delicious, easy, and downright enlightening. Even a kitchen klutz like me could make it. As someone who thinks about efficiency a lot, is this “lazy” or just “highly efficient”? Anyway, try this for yourselves!
Melissa’s “Lazy cannoli” recipe
15oz Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese
1/2 Cup Confectioners Powdered Sugar
Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips to taste (around 1/2 cup as well). You can grate a dark chocolate bar instead of using mini chocolate chips.
Optional: some diced Maraschino Cherries to taste
Mix that all together and serve with Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips (You can get them at Trader Joe’s.). Just dip your pita chips into your cheese/sugar/chocolate mix, and it tastes like heaven.
It is really that easy :)
