Let's Make It
Zest the orange; reserve zest for later use. Cut white membrane off orange; discard. Cut fruit into sections, then cut each section in half.
Beat cream cheese, ricotta, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add chocolate and reserved orange zest; mix well. Gently stir in 2 cups COOL WHIP.
Spread 2 cups cream cheese mixture onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan. Top with layers of 30 wafers and half the remaining cream cheese mixture; repeat layers. Cover with remaining COOL WHIP.
Refrigerate 4 hours. Top with orange sections and remaining wafers just before serving.
Garnish with chocolate curls just before serving. Melt 1 pkg. (4 oz.) BAKER’S Semi-Sweet or White Chocolate, or 1 pkg. (4 oz.) BAKER’S GERMAN’S Sweet Chocolate, as directed on package. Spread with spatula into very thin layer on baking sheet. Refrigerate 10 min. or until firm, but still pliable. To make curls, push a metal spatula firmly along the baking sheet, under the chocolate, so the chocolate curls as it is pushed. (If chocolate is too firm to curl, let stand a few minutes at room temperature; refrigerate again if it becomes too soft.) Use a toothpick to carefully place chocolate curl on a waxed paper-covered tray. Refrigerate 15 min. or until firm. Use toothpick to arrange curls on dessert. Store any remaining curls in airtight container in freezer for up to 6 months.
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping.
