Cannoli Cones

Cannoli’s are one of those dessert that draws a line in the sand and plants people firmly on one side or the other of the love it hate it boundary. Personally, dry, often stale pastry shells dusted with too much confectioners’ sugar just doesn’t do it for me. But the filling, that’s what makes it for me. I would always scoop out the middle leaving the ring behind and leave behind the crust (yeah, I’m going to offend some serious cannoli lovers with this, but I’m calling it a crust). I know some people who shrivel their nose at the sound of then traditional Sicilian dessert and others who can’t pass up the opportunity to try a new bakery’s version. (Personally, I love the one’s down at D’Lorenzo’s – a warm fresh dough sliced and filled. Heaven.)

When I spotted this version of the cannoli, with cute little ice cream cones and barely any work, I knew I had to try them. I just wish I had seen them before my step-sisters wedding shower. Tell me these wouldn’t have been perfect! So the next time you want a down and dirty quick and easy dressed up dessert to impress your neighbors, this is it.


  1. This is a really cool idea :) The cones look lovely :)

  2. This is one of the few Italian things that I’ve never been able to embrace at all. I don’t get the appeal. So, to see it given an overhaul makes me happy. I can deal with sugar cones and the lack of pastry bags!

  3. Such a fun one!

  4. These are wonderful! I can totally picture them at a shower or party…or really, just for myself.

  5. Amazing idea! I love a good cannoli, but they are so hard to come by. This is just genius!

  6. Very creative although I hate to tell you that I actually like the shell of cannolis better than the filling. :)

  7. I am on the side of cannoli. Love, love that you put it in a waffle cone. A great idea that I am going to be trying out for myself soon.

  8. I love this! So simple but so cute!

  9. I LOVE this idea! So much easier!

  10. I’ve made cannolis before and they were so good. And then I juststarted to eat the extra cannoli cream from the bowl every time I opened the fridge. Major self control issues there.

    I would have to mix mini chocolate chips through out instead of just topping it. Love them in there
