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 chocolate chip cannoli dip too! The cannoli cream is very light and incredibly smooth and creamy with less fat and less 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, are 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 the taste and texture similar to that of the cannoli shell.
