Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 ounces dark chocolate
  • 30 large green olives
  • 2 ounces fresh ricotta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Melt one and a half ounces of the dark chocolate in the microwave or using a double boiler.
  • Dip the closed end of each green olive halfway into the melted chocolate.
  • Set on a piece of parchment paper to harden.
  • Melt the remaining one ounce of chocolate and mix in a small bowl with ricotta, lemon zest, sugar, and vanilla.
  • Pipe filling into each olive.
  • Refrigerate olives until ready to serve.

Notes

If you keep the olives in the refrigerator until ready to dip, the chocolate will harden almost on contact.
