Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole milk ricotta*
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • broken waffle cones

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, stir together the ricotta and the powdered sugar until everything is combined. Add the vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt and stir again. Add the chocolate chips and stir one more time until chips are evenly dispersed. Sprinkle more chocolate chips on top for presentation, if desired.
  • Allow the dip to chill in the refrigerator at least 2 hours. Serve cold with broken waffle cone pieces. Dip can be stored in the refrigerator covered tightly up to 5 days. Moisture will separate from dip as it sits, so stir before serving again.

Notes

*The nature of ricotta means this dip will have a slightly grainy mouthfeel. If you are put off by the texture of ricotta, you can strain it-- an overnight process, but easy. Instructions for that here.
