Dessert-Hazelnut Chocolate Cheesecake Filling [Feb. 9th, 2009|08:36 pm]
[Current Mood |cheerfulcheerful]

Using what I had around I made the BOMB dessert.

1/4 cup whole milk ricotta cheese 110 cals 5g
2 tbs reduced fat hazelnut cream cheese (from Panera-Thanks Angela!)80 cals 2g
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder 20 cals
Sweetener to taste
1/4 tsp real vanilla extract

I stirred this up and it tastes like a filling and amazing chocolate hazelnut cheesecake. Granted, it's still fattening and I had the calories only because I didn't eat much for lunch.

210 calories
7 grams protein

Not too terrible for a decadent dessert though. I would have this again for sure.

This sounds delicious and I've written the recipe down. Maybe I can make this for Valentines Day Dinner as a dessert. :) Mmm, can't wait to try it.

I found it really filling. There's a recipe for mini crusts on eggface's blog, but I didn't want to cook at all so I didn't try that.

Yum, sounds so good! What would one do who doesn't have Panera around?

Ok, I found this one - does it sound similar?

I'm not sure. I'd be willing to bet that plain or any flavor available would be good, it just wouldn't be hazelnut. I think cinnamon would be a really good addition too.

I think I might actually have some sf hazelnut coffee syrup somewhere!
