Cannoli Dip

If you have ever ordered a delicious cannoli in an italian restaurant or bakery you know how utterly deliciously finger licking good they are!  If you have ever tried to make them at home, you know how difficult they are.  You need to make the dough for the shells and roll the dough out very thin, then wrap the dough around the cannoli forms and then deep fry them in the hot oil.  Then you make the cannoli filling and fill the cannoli shells with the filling in hopes you don’t break too many shells in the process.  Then you finally get to eat one.

Because they are not the easiest dessert to make, I have come up with my version of the cannoli.

 The Cannoli Dip.

It is the best of both worlds, it has that great cannoli taste and easy to make!

Canolli Dip The first time I made this and brought it to a party, it was gone in minutes.  I like serving it with all sorts of different dipping vessels.  Fruit, sweet crackers, any type of non-filled cookie.
