Chocolate Cannoli

You can't just bring over dinner without dessert! So with my seafood pie, I also brought chocolate cannoli's. I wanted something easy and low stress. As I was buying cheese, I eyed the cannoli shells and asked to buy a dozen with some ricotta.

Chocolate Cannoli
It cannot get easier than this! You can change the fillings as you'd like, like adding grated orange zest or making a simple ricotta filling with sugar and mini chocolate chips.

100 g melted chocolate
12 small cannoli shells
100 g ricotta cheese

Dip one end of each cannoli into the chocolate and let harden on parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Mix melted chocolate with ricotta and refrigerate the mixture.
Right before serving, stuff the ricotta shells with a spoon from both ends.
Tada!

It doesn't look attractive but it tasted good!

Thanks for stopping by! There are some recipes from scratch. However, I think with the proximity of Italy, you could find some at specialized Italian shops! That's where I got mine. Good luck!
