This is a wonderful pound cake that I make for special picnics. I love the inclusion of the fresh apples and cinnamon but the streusel top is the best part.
Grilled Chocolate Raspberry Dessert
A grilled chocolate raspberry dessert is like a quesadilla, but with a sweet tooth. Stuffed with chocolate and raspberries, this is an easy and satisfying dessert.
In addition to raspberries and chocolate, this grilled dessert has a creamy filling made with ricotta cheese and sugar. If you don’t have ricotta cheese on hand, try other soft spreadable cheeses, like cream cheese or cottage cheese.
This dessert is built in layers, with alternating filling, fruit, chocolate, and tortillas. For an extra indulgence, top the grilled yummy with whipped cream before serving.
1 (16-ounce) container whole milk ricotta cheese
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 large flour tortillas
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup fresh raspberries, cut in half
Mix the filling ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth.
Place one tortilla on a cutting board. Spread 1/4 of the filling on the tortilla (this the bottom of the sandwich).
Sprinkle 1/4 of the chocolate chips on the filling, then lay the second tortilla on top.
Spread a light film of filling on top. Sprinkle the halved raspberries on the tortilla and add a few more chocolate chips. Repeat layers with remaining ingredients.
Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Use a spray or wipe the raised rails with oil.
Slide the quesadilla off the counting board onto the grill. Close the lid and grill for 3 to 4 minutes, lifting the edge to check for sear marks. Give the quesadilla a quarter turn after 2 minutes.
Remove from the grill and let stand for 2 minutes before cutting and serving.
