It is always requested for every holiday. My mother's neighbor is Italian. When we moved into the house next door, she brought this over to welcome us to the neighborhood. I enjoyed it and asked for the recipe.
MIX graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar together in a bowl. Shape inside 9” pie plate. If crust is too crumbly, add a small amount of butter so crumbs will hold together. Bake at 375 for 8-9 minutes, until lightly browned. Allow to cool.
COMBINE ricotta, confectioner’s sugar, and almond extract in a bowl and set aside.
COMBINE almonds and chocolate. Chop together in a food processor; do not chop too fine.
FOLD together cheese mix and chopped almond & chocolate and chill.
WHIP heavy cream until stiff. Fold into ricotta and chocolate mix half at a time.
SPOON into chilled crust and let sit overnight before serving.
