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.

    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
