I ❤️Jenna and Julien

Easy Cannoli’s

• 8 cannoli shells, homemade or store bought will work

• 2 cups ricotta cheese

• 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, plus extra for dusting

• 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips, divided

• 1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

• Optional:

• 2 teaspoons fresh orange zest

1 Place the ricotta cheese into a fine mesh strainer and place it in the fridge to drain for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours.

2 When you’re ready to make the filling:

3 In a large bowl combine the drained ricotta cheese, confectioners’ sugar, 1/4 cup of the mini chocolate chips, vanilla extract, and orange zest (if using); mix well. Using a spatula, carefully scrape the mixture into pastry bag fitted with a 1/2 inch open tip. Use at once, or refrigerate until needed; filling can be made up to 24 hours in advance.

4 When ready to serve, pipe the filling into one end of cannoli shell, filling shell halfway, then pipe into other end. If you don’t have a piping bag, you may spoon the filling into the shells. Repeat with remaining shells.

5 Place remaining mini chocolate chips on a small plate. Dip each end of the cannoli into the chocolate chips, then lightly dust with confectioner’s sugar. Serve at once
