Ya’ll are lucky there are two of us in this family. If not, this Easy Cannoli Dip with Waffle Cones may not exist here! While I (Sammy) may be the one to bring these creations to life, Mat is the idea man. We had a version of this from a wholesale club a few months back and Mat was begging for it recently. Rather than head to the store I decided to make my own! I love to recreate store-bought items. Especially when it comes to sweets, I feel that much better about shoveling cannoli filling into my face when I’ve prepared it. Life is about balance. There is always room for treats. In our house, treats are exactly that; a treat. If we have them all the time they are just apart of our diet.
The details on this dip.
It’s sweet and most definitely a dessert dip but it’s not overly sweet. I’m not a crazy sweets person. Mat absolutely is. If I like it and don’t find it too sweet then you know it’s the perfect balance of sweet. This Easy Cannoli Dip with Waffle Cones recipe is smooth a crunchy. It keeps you going back for more. Dip, after dip, after dip. It’s like a platter of chips and salsa, I can’t stop eating it until the platter is gone. This Cannoli Dip was no different.
The basic steps.
This simply sweet dessert is not only right the right amount of “sweet” but it’s SO simple to make you’ll feel like a real pro. It all comes together in the food processor, what’s better than that? No need to get a single-arm PUMP whipping it up. Just toss it in the bowl of a food processor and let modern technology and electricity do the work. Of course, if you don’t have a food processor, you can absolutely make this dish but the blades help break down the ricotta making it super smooth. Whipping the ricotta takes away the grittiness.
Once the ricotta is whipped, add the room temperature cream cheese. It’s important to make sure it’s room temperature. If not, the cream cheese won’t mix smoothly and will be clumpy in the dip. Next, add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Lastly, move everything to a serving dish and mix the mini chocolate chips. It’s THAT simple!
