  • 1 box white cake mix
  • ½ cup butter-melted
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk- divided
  • 1 ½ cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 ½ cups mascarpone cheese
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9x13 pan by spraying generously with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the white cake mix, butter, milk, and eggs and mix well until combined.
  • Pour into the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes or until mostly cooled.
  • Use a straw to poke holes all over the top of the cake. Pour half of the sweetened condensed milk over the top of the cake and smooth.
  • Place the cake in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile combine the ricotta and mascarpone cheese into a large bowl and mix well until combined and smooth. (NOTE: be careful not to overmix as the ricotta cheese can become very runny, if this happens, add to the refrigerator for 25-30 minutes)
  • Add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla and mix until just combined and smooth.
  • Pour the topping over the chilled cake and smooth.
  • Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips over the top of the cake and refrigerate until ready to serve.
