You will need a nut bag or similar to drain out the ricotta.

Try sitting the nut bag inside the simmering basket. Place the basket onto of an overturned bowl that is resting inside a larger bowl. This will catch all the whey as it drains from the ricotta.

Placing the chocolate chips into the freezer ensures that they will not melt and loose their shape during the cooking process.
