      I love this dessert. I substitute cinnamon for the espresso powder and it's delicious! However, it really does depend what kind of ricotta you use. Some are very grainy and bitter, others are creamy. If you find you don't like it the first time you try it, shop around until you find a ricotta choose you like.

      This quick, easy, satisfying dessert saved me from my sweets cravings on phase 1 of the SB diet. I know they say that these cravings are supposed to go away after a while on the diet, but it doesn't work on me! As one reviewer mentioned, the brand of ricotta cheese really does make a difference, as the first time I tried it with a budget generic brand almost made me give up. If you want to splurge, try Friggo brand for smooth, creamy consistency. I've also found that Safeway's Lucerne brand has a superior smooth consistency and flavor. The expresso powder and mini chips really do add to the enjoyment, so don't skip these ingredients.
