I bought a jar of Nutella a couple of weeks back since I wanted to try out a few Nutella recipes that I’d bookmarked.
Gattina has a recipe for a fantastic dessert that makes use of ricotta cheese and Nutella and it is as delicious as it is simple. I’d no idea that ricotta worked well in desserts since I’d only used it in savory dishes before.
(For approximately 15 phyllo cups)
¾ cup ricotta cheese
3 Tbsp Nutella
1 tsp cocoa powder
A pinch of salt
Phyllo cups (I used the pre-made small shells from the store)
For garnishing the cups:
In a bowl, beat the ricotta cheese until smooth. Add the cocoa powder, salt and Nutella and mix well. Chill, spoon into phyllo cups, garnish, and serve.
I thought that the ricotta and Nutella combination was unique and it made for a creamy and luscious dessert. Thanks for the inspiration, Gattina!
