In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well with each addition. Stir in almond extract, vanilla bean paste, and ricotta cheese until well blended.
In a separate mixing bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients little by little until blended. Mix through chocolate chips.
Using a kitchen spoon, scoop spoonfuls of dough onto a tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until baked through completely.
Transfer to a rack to cool completely. Meanwhile make the glaze by mixing together glaze ingredients. Ice the cooled biscuits and enjoy!
