To assemble: take one lasagna noodle and spread an even layer of the ricotta cheese mixture on top, about 1/2 inch in thickness. Next, spread a layer of strawberries on top of the ricotta, except for about 2 inches on one end. Carefully roll the noodle onto itself, toward the end with no strawberries until it is sitting on top of itself in a roll. Before serving, top with more strawberries, diced kiwi, and a drizzle of sweetened cream. Makes 6-8 servings.

HINT: The higher quality ricotta you choose, the better this will taste. Don’t skimp!

HINT: Substitute the vanilla pudding mix with other pudding flavors like cheesecake, lemon, or coconut cream for a fun alternative.

This ice cream dessert is traditionally decorated with powder sugar and cocoa powder making stripes like you would find on a beach ball. A pattern can be made out of parchment paper; Sift the cocoa powder over the paper pattern then turn the patter and sift the sugar over the pattern.

¾ Cup brandy

2 ¼ Cups hazelnut ice cream softened

2 Cups chocolate ice cream softened

Cocoa powder and powdered sugar

 

Lightly grease bottom of 2 pint bowl; cut circle wax paper and fit into bowl smoothing it.

Make sure lady fingers are not too long to fit into sides of bowl; if so cut to fit.

Pour brandy into a flat dish; quickly dip lady finger into brandy and turn over to coat.

Quickly stand the lady finger in the bowl with sugar side facing bowl

Repeat with remaining lady fingers making a solid surface of the cakes; fill bottom with any broken pieces.

Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Spoon the hazelnut ice cream in center of the bowl; spread it up and around the sides to completely cover the lady fingers.

Freeze until solid about 2 hours.

Beat any remaining brandy into the chocolate ice cream and fill center of dessert, level, cover with foil and freeze.

To serve remove foil and carefully run a thin knife around the edges between the lady fingers and the bowl.

Invert a cold plate over the bowl and turn upside down to remove dessert from bowl.

Carefully remove the bowl and remove the wax paper; sift with cocoa powder and powdered sugar over pattern to make stripes.

You can sift plain sugar all over or plain cocoa powder.

Hot Chocolate Cheesecake Shooters

Cookie Ingredients:
3 1/4 cups flour
4 ounces hot chocolate mix

1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups of chocolate chips – any variety

Directions:
In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa mix, salt, and baking soda
Set aside
In a separate bowl, use a mixer to cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about three minutes.
Add the eggs and vanilla to the butter mixture and cobine well
Add the dry ingredients to the wet, a small amount at a time, until incorporated.
Add in the chocolate chips.
Chill the dough for one hour.
Preheat your oven to 350F
Line baking sheet with parchment paper
Drop rounded teaspoons about 2 inches apart
Bake for about 10 minutes
Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes
Transfer to a cooling rack

2  teaspoons  cornstarch

4  cups  milk, divided

2  (3.5-oz.) dark chocolate bars (at least 70% cacao), chopped

1. Whisk together cornstarch and 1/2 cup milk until smooth.

2. Cook remaining 3 1/2 cups milk in a large, nonaluminum saucepan over medium heat until bubbles appear around edge of saucepan (about 4 minutes; do not boil). Whisk in chocolate, honey, vanilla extract, and salt until blended and smooth. Whisk in cornstarch mixture.

Hot Chocolate Shots

http://www.babble.com


2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup chocolate ice cream
1 square unsweetened baking chocolate
2 1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
In a saucepan, melt together the butter, sugar, ice cream, and baking chocolate until smooth. Whisk in the water and orange flavoring. Heat over medium-high heat, just until steaming. Serve with whipped cream and a sprinkling of orange zest and grated chocolate in chocolate-dipped shot glasses.

To chocolate-coat the edges of your shot glasses, zap 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips in a small, microwave-safe bowl just until melted. (The chocolate should be smooth and melty, but not hot. Overheating it will cause the chocolate to mottle as it cools and hardens, so be careful that you only just microwave it until it’s barely melted.) Dip the edges of each shot glass into the melted chocolate. Allow the chocolate to cool  and harden before pouring hot cocoa into the glasses.
