How to Bake a luscious light Chocolate Cheese cake
I have used fresh ricotta in this recipe and to make fresh ricotta. Boil 4 cups of full fat milk with 1 cup of fresh cream. Add 1 to 2 tsp of vinegar when they reach the boiling point. Use a muslin cloth to drain the whey completely from the ricotta.
Also Note that the base of cheese cake, I have used almond meal but you can swap it with more chocolate biscuits.
