Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Zest the orange; reserve zest for later use. Cut white membrane off orange; discard. Cut fruit into sections, then cut each section in half.
  • Beat cream cheese, ricotta, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add chocolate and reserved orange zest; mix well. Gently stir in 2 cups Cool Whip.
  • Spread 2 cups cream cheese mixture onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan. Top with layers of 30 wafers and half the remaining cream cheese mixture; repeat layers. Cover with remaining Cool Whip.
  • Refrigerate 4 hours. Top with orange sections and remaining wafers just before serving.

Special Extra

Garnish with chocolate curls just before serving. Melt 4 oz. Baker's Semi-Sweet or White Chocolate as directed on package. Spread with spatula into very thin layer on baking sheet. Refrigerate 10 min. or until firm, but still pliable. To make curls, push a metal spatula firmly along the baking sheet, under the chocolate, so the chocolate curls as it is pushed. (If chocolate is too firm to curl, let stand a few minutes at room temperature; refrigerate again if it becomes too soft.) Use a toothpick to carefully place chocolate curl on a parchment-covered tray. Refrigerate 15 min. or until firm. Use toothpick to arrange curls on dessert. Store any remaining curls in airtight container in freezer for up to 6 months.
