Cannolis with Chocolate Chip-Ricotta Filling

Recipe: Cannolis with Chocolate Chip-Ricotta Filling


For the Chocolate Chip/Ricotta Filling:

  • 2 lbs whole milk ricotta cheese, well drained
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 tsps purevanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups mini chocolate chips

To Decorate:

  • Store bought cannoli shells
  • ½ cup chopped pistachios to decorate


First using a stand mixer beat the ricotta cheese until smooth. Next add the vanilla and slowly beat in the powdered sugar. Once combined, mix in chocolate chips until incorporated using a rubber spatula.

Transfer the filling in the refrigerator covered with plastic wrap and chill several hours.

To serve, use a plain large pastry bag to pipe the cream filling into the cannoli shells, dip the exposed cream filled end in the chopped pistachios and serve!

*Cannolis cannot be assembled in advance as the shells will become soft.
