Ingredients

 
FOR THE FILLING
 
1 c. heavy cream
 
1/4 c. powdered sugar, plus more for serving
 
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
 
pinch of nutmeg
 
1/2 c. ricotta
 
1 c. mini chocolate chips
 
FOR THE FRENCH TOAST
 
large eggs
 
1/2 c. whole milk
 
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
 
1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract (optional)
 
pinch of kosher salt
 
12 slices white bread, crusts removed
 
Butter, for cooking
 
Maple syrup, for serving

Instructions

Make filling: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat heavy cream with powdered sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg until soft peaks form. Stir in ricotta and chocolate chips until evenly incorporated.

In another large bowl, beat eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Set aside.

Make roll-ups: Roll out each slice of bread until flat and thin. Spread a thin layer of the filling onto the bread, then roll up tightly. Very quickly dunk each dipper into the egg mixture.

In a large nonstick skillet, melt about 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Working in batches, add 4 to 5 dippers (depending on size of skillet), seam-side down. Cook until golden all over, about 2 minutes per side.

Sift more powdered sugar over cooked roll-ups and serve with maple syrup for dunking.
