Frozen Chocolate Ricotta Sandwiches

I am very conscious of what I put in my body and try to eat as clean and healthy as possible.  Eating foods that are God made, not processed, keeps me feeling great.  I don't calorie count, nor do I look at fat.  I do look at labels, and I tend to go for foods that are low on the ingredient list and high in fiber or protein.  
My weakness is most definitely sweets and my love for wine.  So today I thought I'd share with you a dessert that isn't to shabby for ya.  With 120 calories and 4grams of protein I can eat this as my "bed night snack" and not feel to guilty while still satisfying my sweet tooth and gulping down a big glass of milk.

These Frozen Chocolate Ricotta Sandwiches were found on pinterest, and you can scoop up the recipe yourself on my "desserts gone healthy" board.  It was originally in Women's Health Magazine.

First mix up the ricotta and fruit preserves.  Here I used apricot but recently have done raspberry which is super delish.  I recommend using 2 tablespoons of the fruit preserve to give it more flavor.
 Next fold in the tablespoon of sugar and mini chocolate chips.  (I use the cacao nibs from Whole Foods)
 Mix the ingredients together and put them in between your chocolate slabs (I used chocolate graham crackers) Set on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for an hour.  They can be eaten after that and then kept in a ziploc in the freezer for a quick go to after dinner dessert.  
*note the evil chocolate decadence that my husband purchased when at the grocery.  Here I'm trying to stay healthy and he throws this in my face. Gah!  :)
 I can have one of these and a handful of fruit with my ice cold milk and be ready to go.  :)  If you make them I'd love to know what you think!
