since it is valentines day, i would like to add a few quick ideas for treats.
Chocolate-Malt Ricotta Balls
1/4 cup part-skim ricotta
1 tablespoon hot cocoa mix
1 teaspoon malted-milk powder
mix all ingredients and form into balls. refrigerate to harden.
Fruit Dipped in Chocolate
in a double boiler, melt chocolate chunks or chocolate chips. choose your favorite fruit (strawberries, bananas, oranges, cherries, blueberries, apple, etc.) and dip into chocolate. set on waxed paper and place in refrigerator to allow to chill. serve immediately.
