Traditional Sicilian Cannoli Cream

the picture, although not the recipe, are from this site, the recipes found here are great: Ricette di Sicilia

4 cups (800 g) ricotta cheese (ideally sheep's milk)
1 cup (200 g) dark chocolate small flakes
1 1/2 cups (350 g) confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup (100 g) candied orange peel (optional)

squeeze the ricotta using a cheesecloth
sift the sugar
mix sugar and cheese well
add the chocolate pieces (and optional candied fruit)
mix lightly

use cream between cake layers, in cannoli pastry, or just on a spoon.
