Ingredients

  • 6 large ripe nectarines, halved and stoned
  • 4 ripe apricots, halved and stoned
  • 55g caster sugar
  • 30g ground hazelnuts
  • 300g ricotta
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • For the chocolate cinnamon wafers
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 100g shortbread biscuits
  • 75g dark chocolate, melted

Method

For the chocolate cinnamon wafers

Crumb cinnamon and biscuits in a food processor until fine, add melted chocolate and mix well. Place mixture between two sheets of baking paper and, using a rolling pin, roll very thinly into a rectangle about 20 x 24cm. Remove top sheet and, using a sharp knife, mark 8 rectangles (approx 5 x 8cm). Replace paper and freeze until firm (10-15 minutes) or until required.

Place nectarines and apricots, cut side up, on a foil-lined baking tray and sprinkle with sugar and hazelnuts. Cook under a hot grill for about 5 mins or until fruit is warmed through.

Combine ricotta and icing sugar in a small bowl and mix well.

To serve

Serve warm fruit with a dollop of ricotta and the chocolate wafers on the side.
