Made this at the weekend, it was really good. I substituted the ricotta for philadelphia light and just used a chocolate sauce as I didnt have caramel sauce. Went down well with my guests.

I am thinking of trying to do something similar with strawberries and using sugar free jam instead of the coffee.

Hi I’m struggling with the Chocolate and Caramel ingredients for this desert. I’m also a bloke who thought he knew he way around ASDA.
Can you give me some brand names to look for for both of these items please?
Many thanks
