BABY TIRAMISU

The easiest, tastiest, 107 calorie snack ever! It was seriously delicious! Better than most 300 and up calorie treats! I have to give my sister credit for finding this recipe on eatingwell.com. It took all of about 15 min to prepare and when we finally dove in after dinner it was better than I could have imagined!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup nonfat ricotta cheese, (4 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons confectioner's sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 12 ladyfingers, (about 1 3/4 ounces)
  • 4 tablespoons brewed espresso, or strong coffee, divided
  • 2 tablespoons bittersweet chocolate chips, melted (see Tip)

    Preparation

    1. Combine ricotta, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
    2. Place 6 ladyfingers in a 9-by-5-inch (or similar size) loaf pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons espresso (or coffee). Spread the ricotta mixture over the ladyfingers. Place another layer of ladyfingers over the ricotta and drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons espresso (or coffee). Drizzle with melted chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.

    Tips & Notes

    • Tip: To melt chocolate: Microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium in 20-second intervals until melted, stirring after each interval. Or place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.
