This recipe is an accident I created it because all I had in the fridge one day when some unexpected guests arrived were leftover brownies so I decided to make a dessert out of them. Since then it has become one of my staples and one of my most popular desserts when I entertain.


Brownie mix 16 Ounce
Fresh ricotta cheese 300 Gram
Fresh strawberries 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , chopped
Marsala/Any liquor 2 Tablespoon
Icing sugar To Taste
For topping
Chocolate sauce 2 Tablespoon (made with dark chocolate)
Icing sugar 2 Pinch



1. Make brownies as per the package instructions. Using a cookie cutter, cut some of the brownies into rounds. If the brownie rounds are thick, cut horizontally into halves.


2. In a bowl, combine ricotta, icing sugar and marsala together. Add strawberries and mix again.

3. On a serving plate, create a stack starting with a brownie round, a spoonful of the ricotta mixture, another brownie round, more ricotta, another brownie round and a final scoop of ricotta mixture.


4. Top with chocolate syrup and sift some icing sugar just before serving.
