Cannoli Cones

A family friend makes the BEST cannoli’s at the holidays. I know that I could never make anything nearly as amazing as hers, but since I was having guests over this past weekend I thought I would create my own version. Since I didn’t feel like frying cannoli shells I used a sugar cone in its place. The outcome was everything I hoped for: a sweet filling in a crunchy shell.
Cannoli Cones
6-8 Sugar Cones (I used Joy)
mini chocolate chips
1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
½ cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (I use Watkins)
1 cup heavy whipping cream (whip until forms stiff peaks) mini chocolate chips
1. Combine ricotta, powdered sugar and vanilla until incorporated.
2. Mix in chocolate chips.
3. Fold in whipped cream.
4. Allow to chill for at least 30 minutes.
5. Place cannoli mixture in a baggy seal and cut off the corner. 
6. Put cones in a cup to hold them upright.
7. Fill with cannoli cream and top with mini chocolate chips
8. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to enjoy.
