  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll refrigerated pizza crust. Cut into six 4 to 5-inch rounds.
  • 2
    In a stand mixer, beat together cream cheese, ricotta, vanilla, cinnamon, and powdered sugar until smooth. Spoon into the center of one side of each pizza crust round.
  • 3
    Fold each crust round over the filling, using a fork to seal the edges together. Place on prepared baking sheet. Baste calzones with 1/4-cup (4 tablespoons) of melted butter. Bake in preheated oven for 11-17 minutes, or until the calzones turn a light golden brown. Remove and cool slightly.
  • 4
    In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt 2/3 cups of the chocolate chips and 1/4-cup (4 tablespoons) melted butter together. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over calzones. Sprinkle with remaining mini chocolate chips. Serve warm. Enjoy!
