Cinnamon Cannoli Dip Recipe

by jerseygirl on June 9, 2017 · 2 comments

Raise your hand if you’d like a cannoli. I can’t imagine that too many people dislike them.

Growing up in an Italian/ Croatian family meant that at every family party or celebration had a pastry tray, cannoli or rum cake. There was nothing better than finishing off a meal with a crispy shell filled with creamy sweetened ricotta.

On holidays, I still like to carry on the tradition and get a pastry tray. Or serve this party dessert.

This cannoli dip is definitely not something you would find at an Italian bakery. It’s the Americanized version with sweet cinnamon chips added and so easy to put together. If you love cinnamon (like my family does), you will go crazy for this dip. It feeds a crowd and the recipe can be tripled or doubled. I served it with graham crackers and strawberries but another fruit or broken sugar cones would be perfect also.

Now let’s talk about my video. It’s my first one that I made and I’m pretty proud of it. Thank you to Kristin from Dizzy, Busy and Hungry for showing me the ropes. A few weeks ago we got together for the day and made some cooking videos. It was lots of fun and this will be the first of many. My husband and fifteen year old son helped do the editing and I think my son might have a busy job this summer.

Happy weekend! If you are having a little get together, think about making this cannoli dip!
