This decadent dessert of a chocolate and raspberry ricotta toastie is easily cooked in a pie iron over a campfire. The crust turns golden brown, while the filling is oozy and delicious. Sweet chocolate chips and bright raspberries are the perfect complement to the creamy ricotta cheese.
You can use a variety of bread for this recipe. However, note that sweetbreads (such as fruit loaf, cinnamon bread, and similar) will brown quicker due to their high sugar content. They may require a slightly lower cooking temperature to heat the insides without burning the outside.
If you do not have a sweet tooth the sugar can be left out of the ricotta and not dusted on the top. Some raspberries can be super sweet, so sometimes additional sugar is not needed. Make sure to try a few berries before you add them to the sandwich.
