"This dip takes the tastes and flavors of a cannoli and turns it into a wonderful party snack! To serve, break up pizzelle cookies or waffle cones into chip-size pieces to scoop cannoli dip and enjoy! The dip tastes just like the filling from a cannoli, and the pizzelles act as the shell."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (8 ounce) package
1 1/2 cups
miniature semisweet chocolate chips
just plain wonderful!! I use mascarpone instead of cream cheese...both are great!
I made 1/4 of the recipe. That still yielded well over a cup. It just wasn't quite sweet enough and the texture of the ricotta was just sort of unpalatable to me. In the real dessert, the filling always seemed creamier to me also. Are they using heavy cream, mascarpone, not sure. It was also missing a hint of fruit flavor maybe lemon or something that I have tasted in cannolis. I don't think it is this recipe as I have tried similar desserts and dips that play on the cannoli theme, just eliminating the shell, and felt the same way about the ricotta taste and texture. It does taste better after it is refriferated though.
I hunted for a cannoli dip recipe after trying one made by a friend. This is yummy--my preschooler even approved! It's not overly sweet, especially if you use dark chocolate chips rather than semisweet, and it goes well with a variety of dippers. Besides the waffle cone pieces, you could try vanilla wafers or biscoff cookies (or even strawberries for a slightly healthier option.)
I can't eat traditional cannolis because I stick to a gluten-free diet. This recipe is the answer to my prayers! Rich and delicious, this recipe will be added to my list of favorites. And it's so easy to make. This one's a winner.
My family really enjoyed this. The only things I did differently were to strain my ricotta in a cheesecloth line colander and add a bit of grated lemon peel to the mix. Delicious! Thank you for sharing!
Awesome cannoli dip! I will definitely be making this for any parties. To avoid having the dip be too runny I strained the ricotta cheese using paper towels. Simply put a cup of the cheese on paper towels cover and squeeze to get the moisture out and repeat. I served with pizzells sprinkles with powdered sugar.
Awesome sweet dip! However, no need to double unless you have 100 guests! (Voice of experience, have LOTS left over! Not good for the New Years resolution of eating better!!) I did add 1/2 tsp of almond extract just because I like it, but tasted before that and my rating is based on how it was written.Fabulous, guests loved it!
Made this last weekend for a bbq. Family loved it. It didn't have the consistency of a dip, more soup like. How can it be thickened up?
