Ricotta Filled Chocolate Chip Bars

It's Monday! Ugh. Although I will admit my day went fast. Can't wait to get home to the little man these days, he is becoming such a ham!

Reminder, we find out if we are having another little man or girl on Thursday! I'll be sure to post the details...stay tuned.

Until then, bake up some of these bars. They won't last you till Thursday, but hey, it's the thought that counts. I found this recipe on the back of a bag of chocolate chips one day this summer, and substituted the ricotta cheese for the eggs, as I was out. I had NO idea if they would turn out, but oh....my....gosh.....they did.

I now feel like making a pan of lasagna, just so I'll have extra ricotta hanging out.


Ricotta Filled Chocolate Chip Bars
1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. baking soda
1 stick butter, melted
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. ricotta cheese
1 1/2 t. vanilla
chocolate chips

Mix all wet ingredients together, then add dry. Stir until just combined, fold in chocolate chips. Spread in an 8x8 sprayed baking pan. Bake for 18 minutes at 375 degrees.

The easiest bar ever!

  8. This sounds fantastic. Ricotta is wonderful and putting it in brownies can only make them good.
