Keto Cannoli Chocolate Chunk Cheesecake

Mamma mia! Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you turned cannolis into cheesecake? Sitting atop a crumbly, cinnamon crust is a very thick ricotta topping with chunky 100% cacao chocolate mixed in. It’s so good, you wouldn’t believe each slice only has 3 grams of sugar and 10 grams of net carbs per slice!
