Swirls with Mascarpone, Ricotta, and Chocolate Chips

Do they sound appealing? Well, don’t worry,

They are puff pastry swirls with mascarpone, ricotta, and chocolate chips—they live up to their name!

What can I tell you? They are a delight.

I took a recipe from an Italian site, Giallo Zafferano, but I added my own touch by adding mascarpone, which was not in the original recipe.

Aesthetically, they are not as beautiful as those of Giallo Zafferano, but in terms of taste, I think the addition made it even better than it was.

If you want another recipe using puff pastry, I previously made a post about Puff twists with mascarpone. These are different in terms of shape and taste but will still satisfy your sweet tooth.

Description

Swirls with mascarpone, ricotta, and chocolate chips are delightful treats, combining creamy cheeses with sweet chocolate in a flaky pastry. Here's a recipe to create these delicious swirls:

Ingredients
  • 1 sheet puff pastry (thawed according to package instructions)
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • icing sugar to decorate
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
Instructions
    • Preheat the oven to 190°C ( 374°F)
    • Put the drained ricotta, mascarpone, sugar, and cornstarch in a bowl.
    • Mix everything with a spoon.
    • Unroll the thawed puff pastry and moisten the edge (1 cm) (0.4 inches) by brushing with water, which will better seal your swirls.
    • Spread the ricotta and mascarpone cream on the surface, leaving 1 cm free from the edges. Add the chocolate chips, keeping a few for decoration.
    • Roll up from the shorter side, creating a roll.
  1. Swirls with Mascarpone, Ricotta, and Chocolate Chips
    • To get the swirls from the puff pastry log, instead of the usual knife, I used cotton thread (you can also use dental floss). This way, you will get some nice round swirls and avoid the leakage of cream.
    • Put the thread around the log so that when you pull the two opposing threads, they cut the log.
  2. Swirls with Mascarpone, Ricotta, and Chocolate Chips
    • Position it to make the swirl about 1 ½ cm (0.6 inches) thick.
    • Pull the two threads, and magically, you will get the swirls.
    • Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    • Add some chocolate chips kept aside where they are missing, and bake for 15/20 minutes.
    • Once ready, decorate them with icing sugar.
