Ingredients

2 cups crushed graham crackers, crushed finely

1 tbsp. butter, melted

1/4 cup semisweet white chocolate chips, melted

1/4 cup part-skim ricotta

4 fresh strawberries, diced

 

Directions

  1. Add graham crackers and butter in bowl and stir until butter is evenly distributed.

  5. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the mixture on each graham cracker crust and top with a couple of strawberries.
