Ricotta Chocolate Chip Cups
this is just a snack makes 4 mini cups

- 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoon milk, more or less depending on thickness desired
- favorite toppings
Chocolate Chip Cups
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease mini muffin pan.
Get a little bit of dough, the size of a quarter. Roll it up then make an indentation in it. Put it in the greased muffin tin. Repeat until desired amount is made.
Bake for 5 minutes. Take out of oven. I used the back of a round 1/4 teaspoon measuring spoon to make another indentation in the cookie dough. Do not go all the way through the sides or bottom.
Put back in oven and cook an additional 3-5 minutes. Until brown outside is brown and inside is very close to being done. Take out of oven, run a knife around the edges and let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Take out of pan and cool completely on wire rack.
Whisk ricotta cheese, vanilla, sugar and milk until incorporated and whipped. Spoon, or pipe into chocolate chip cups. Top with your favorite fruit or grated chocolate.
