  • Using a small, sharp knife, peel the blood oranges, removing all of the bitter white pith. Working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the orange sections into the bowl; pour off the juice and reserve for another use. Add the Cointreau to the orange sections and toss to coat.

  • Line up 6 Champagne flutes or other tall stemmed glasses on the counter. Add 4 orange sections to each glass. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the sweetened ricotta on top, then sprinkle on some of the grated chocolate. Repeat the layering of orange sections, ricotta and chocolate once. Top each trifle with a couple of orange sections, sprinkle with cinnamon and serve.

Make Ahead

The trifle can be refrigerated for up to 4 hours. Sprinkle with cinnamon just before serving.
