Ricotta Chocolate Chip Fritters
- 1 lb. ricotta cheese
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 3 tbsp. flour
- 1 quart olive oil
- Sugar for dusting
Mix the ricotta cheese, mini chocolate chips, and flour in a bowl until well combined.
Pour the oil into a large sauté pan and place over medium-high heat.
Using 2 spoons, scoop the ricotta mixture into slightly flat football-shaped fritters and place them carefully into the hot oil. Let the fritters cook until they are crisp and brown on the outside.
Using a slotted spoon, pull the fritters out of the oil one by one and put them on a paper towel to drain. As they cool, dust them with sugar.
