  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • powdered sugar, for dusting

  2. Using the end of a wooden spoon, poke holes all over the top of the cake, about an inch apart.
  3. Pour one can of sweetened condensed milk over the top of the cake, then cover and refrigerate the cake for 1-2 hours.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the ricotta, mascarpone and vanilla, and beat until smooth.
  5. Add powdered sugar and beat until completely combined. Add sweetened condensed milk, a Tablespoon at a time, until proper frosting consistency is reached.
