Cannoli Dip

Cannoli Dip is the perfect, no bake dessert that allows you to enjoy cannoli filling without a lot of work. Let’s face it, everyone loves a creamy dessert. However, not many people enjoy making creamy desserts! It’s all about the instant gratification. With this yummy dessert dip, you can whip up this treat in a few minutes and dig in immediately!

No cooking, just mixing. How does that sound? To me, it sounds like an easy to make treat that you can make for a holiday party, gathering, or just as an every day dessert.

What’s A Cannoli

A cannoli is an Italian pastry that consists of a tube-like crispy shell (fried pastry dough) that is filled with a sweetened, creamy ricotta filling. They originally were a treat offered during Carnevale season were thought to be a symbol of fertility! I know they are a great dessert, but didn’t realize they had powers like that!

These days they are more of a yummy dessert than an aphrodisiac. Italians and other nationalities alike enjoy these sweet goodies year round. Since they are relatively small and no utensils are required, they are are easy to grab and go. Of course, you don’t want to just inhale these desserts, you really should savor each bite because each bite is delectable!

Ingredients Needed

Cannoli dip is basically like an inside out cannoli. Rather than stuffing the cannoli filling inside a cannoli shell, you take the crispy shell and immerse it in the yummy filling! To me, the best part of a cannoli is the filling so this dessert is even better than a tasty Italian pastry!

Easy Desserts

One of the reasons I don’t typically like making desserts is because after making dinner and then cleaning up the aftermath of dinner, I’m not usually in the mood to start the process all over again! I’d much rather get the kids ready for bed and mixing up a delicious cocktail like a Peach Cobbler Martini. However, my arm can usually be twisted into making an easy to make dessert, if there is time.
