My first job was a waitress at an Italian restaurant where I was introduced to desserts such as Tiramisu and the Cannoli. I can’t leave an Italian restaurant these days without ordering one or the other. A few months ago a new pizza and wings place opened up down the road from our house and we found ourselves eating there once a week during my pregnancy. Each visit would end with me ordering a cannoli to go. Their cannolis are so amazing.
I took a poll on the Poofy Cheeks facebook page to see which recipe I should share (tiramisu or cannoli) and cannoli won! I used Coffee Mate French Vanilla creamer which kept the recipe down to four ingredients and added the perfect amount of classic vanilla flavor.
- 2 cups whole milk ricotta cheese
- 1 cup confectioners sugar powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup Coffee Mate French Vanilla creamer
- 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a medium bowl add ricotta cheese and whip with a spatula until it is smooth and creamy.
Stir in powdered sugar and Coffee Mate French Vanilla until well blended.
Add chocolate chips and stir.
***I then put the filling into a pastry bag and snipped the end to easily fill the cannoli shells. I bought the cannoli shells at my local Publix bakery for $.60 ea
With only four ingredients you can’t go wrong with this recipe – plus it saves so much money over buying them at a restaurant!
