With a rolling pin, then pull a sheet of about 3 mm thick, cut it into discs with a diameter of about 10 cm. Wrap the discs on the special tin cylinders, sealing the edges well with beaten egg white, fry them in abundant boiling oil and when they are golden, drain and put them to lose the excess oil on absorbent paper. When they get warm, remove them from the cylinders.

Mix the ricotta with the sugar and pass it through a sieve, add the candied fruit and the coarsely chopped chocolate.
