If you have any trouble finding dark chocolate chunks, which are most commonly sold at natural food stores, you can buy any dark chocolate (dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants and thus the best choice) and chop it into ¼" (or smaller) pieces for this recipe. When you open the container of ricotta, be sure to drain any liquid that may be sitting on the top. It'll make for a much creamier, richer filling.

  • Makes 4 servings
  • 1 cup all-natural low-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon amaretto flavored agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon natural 70% cocoa mini dark chocolate chunks, coarsely chopped
  • 4 naturally sweetened wheat sugar cones (I used Let's Do . . . Organic)

Using a whisk, mix the ricotta, agave, and ½ tablespoon of the chocolate until combined. Cover the mixture and refrigerate for at least 1hour to allow the filling to chill and the flavors to meld. Divide the ricotta mixture evenly among the four cones (about ¼ cup each). Sprinkle the remaining chocolate pieces evenly over the cones. Serve immediately.
