Inside Out Cannolis|
Cannolis are always popular, but they take forever to make! All that forming and stuffing of shells is enough to give anyone a headache. This recipe combines the classic mixture of ingredients for a dessert that tastes just as good, and is much easier to make and transport. We like serving these with fresh fruit and a drizzle or two of chocolate sauce, but they are great plain.
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
15 ounces ricotta cheese
2/3 cup miniature chocolate chips
16 pizzelle cookies, cut into small wedges
Fresh fruit (optional)
Chocolate sauce (optional)
In a large chilled bowl, whip the heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla together until soft peaks form. Fold in the ricotta and chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, and up to 24 hours before serving. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the cheese mixture into serving dishes. Arrange the pizzelle wedges around the dishes. Top with the optional fruit and chocolate sauce if desired and serve.
