Who doesn’t like cannoli?
You can’t go wrong with this chocolate chip cannoli dip, it’s easy to make, kid-friendly and delicious tasting!
Best of all, you won’t mind serving it to the kids, because it’s made with ricotta cheese.
A healthier cheese, ricotta cheese contains a lot of protein, about 7 grams of protein in each 1/4 cup of serving.
Plus, adults will love this cannoli dip too! The cannoli cream is very light and incredibly smooth and creamy with less fat and fewer calories than most decadent desserts.
No one ever passes up an Italian classic pastry like a cannoli, at least not in our family! But when you make it into a dip like this one?
You have to admit, it is so much more fun!
What I love most about this dessert dip, is the mini chocolate chips!
- Chocolate chips always make everything taste more delicious!
- With its light creamy texture along with the crunchy sugar cones, crushed pistachios, and semi-sweet mini chocolate chips, who can resist?
- Serve this cannoli dip with broken sugar cones or with broken waffle cones. It adds a taste and texture similar to that of the cannoli shell.
I bet your family and friends will go bonkers over this chocolate chip cannoli dip!
This is a super easy dessert dip to make. It won’t break the bank, and it makes a great snack too! You can even make cannoli dip ahead, cover with clear wrap and chill up to one day ahead.
A fun idea for everyone to enjoy! Best served chilled! Try this recipe!

do you use granular sugar or powdered sugar. Thanks in advance for the reply.
I used granular sugar, but you can use powdered sugar in this recipe and it will make it a thicker texture.
What a fun idea! I've never done a sweet dip before! I could be a nice spread on bread too! Maybe for a Sunday morning treat?
That sounds delicious Sandra, on bread – I would like to try that too! Enjoy and have a great weekend!
This is as delicious-looking that is as delicious-looking as it is beautiful; I can't decide what I love the most about this dip. Is it the ricotta? The chocolate chips? The pistachios? Or the bits of sugar cone? Just wow! Thanks for this recipe, it's my favorite of the day and knowing it is from my favorite pair of sister-foodies makes it even better. Wishing you both (and your families) the merriest of holiday seasons full of continued blessings and delicious food.
You are So Sweet Dan! thank you for your kind words, we wish you the same! Enjoy the holidays and keep cooking those fabulous meals!!
What a great idea. So much easier than stuffing cannoli too 🙂 It looks delicious!
We agree Sue, the dip is so much more fun than filling cannoli shells. Hope you ll try this recipe!
