2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
3. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat ricotta, butter, powdered sugar and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in heavy cream.

7. Melt the chocolate: chop it and place in an oven safe bowl; fill a saucepan with hot water (so that water doesn't touch the bowl with chocolate if you place it over the water); heat the saucepan until it begins to simmer, then place the bowl with chocolate on top of the saucepan; when the chocolate begins to melt, stir it with a spatula until smooth.
