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.

Step-by-Step

  5. FOLD together cheese mix and chopped almond & chocolate and chill.
  6. WHIP heavy cream until stiff. Fold into ricotta and chocolate mix half at a time.
  7. SPOON into chilled crust and let sit overnight before serving.
