Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 12
Categories: Cakes / Chocolate / Christmas / Desserts

8  oz  Cream cheese -- softened
1 1/4  c  Powdered sugar
15  oz  Ricotta cheese
1  c  Miniature chocolate chips
8  oz  Red candied cherries --
    Finely chopped
1    Louisiana Crunch Cake
8  oz  Cool Whip -- thawed
3/4  c  Red candied cherries --

In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Stir in ricotta cheese until well blended, then fold in chocolate chips and chopped cherries. Chill mixture overnight until firm, so it achieves the proper spreading consistency. The next day, carefully cut the cake horizontally, making three layers. Set bottom layer on serving plate. Spread chilled mixture on cake bottom, then place the next cake layer on and repeat until top of cake is covered but sides are not. Spread cool whip on sides of cake up to meet filling on top of cake. Garnish by placing cherry halves around cake edge.
