    Filling Cannoli Cupcakes with Chocolate chip cannoli cream


    Let cupcakes cool completely and mix your cannoli cream.  Put cannoli cream in a gallon ziploc bag, or a pastry bag fitted with a star tip.  

    Once the cupcakes have cooled, use a spoon or a small biscut cutter to cut out a 1" x 1" circle in the center of the cupcake.  Fill this with chocolate chip cannoli cream. Finish the cupcake with even more sweetened cannoli cream, or the buttercream frosting of your choice.

    Cupcakes can be made in advance, we don't recommend filling them more than a 12 hours in advance.  

    PS. For a perfect cut in half cannoli cupcake, freeze for 30 minutes, then cut with a clean hot knife (we ran ours under hot water for 30 seconds).

    Cherry Cannoli Dip with Chocolate Chunks

    Cherry Cannoli Dip with Chocolate Chunks

    Most people are familiar with an infamous ice cream flavor that combines the tart flavors of cherries with the rich flavor of chocolate. We thought Valentine's Day would be a great time to re create those flavors in a delicious cannoli dip! 

    This dip uses our cannoli cream recipe, then combines the syrup found in high end maraschino cherries, with dark chocolate chunks to create the perfect balance of cherry and chocolate. 

    We found that you needed a lot of syrup to get that cherry flavor, so this filling is a little too loose to fill cannoli with. If you have your heart set on filling cannoli, try to find extra dry ricotta impastata, or let your dip sit in the fridge overnight. 

    Here is what you'll need:

    16 oz of cannoli filling (if you're making it yourself, make sure you drain the ricotta over night to get some of the moisture out.) Our recipe is here

    1/2 cup of maraschino cherries, washed and crushed by hand

    2 tbsp of cherry syrup (see our note on cherries below)

    1/4 cup of dark chocolate chunks or chips

    Optional: red food coloring 

    Before we begin, lets talk about cherries. Almost everyone is familiar with those bright red cherries that top ice cream sundaes, but here we suggest splurging on a different kind of cherry, Fabbri Amarena or Luxardo cherries. Made in Italy, these cherries have a more complex flavor that those bright red orbs we're familiar with stateside.  Their syrup is thicker, a little goes a long way here, and keeps our cannoli cream from getting too thin.  If you're going to use American maraschino cherries, we recommend taking the juice from the container and boiling it on the stove until it reduces by half, then mixing it into the filling

    After you've sorted out your cherry juice, this filling is easy! Simply combine crushed cherries, chocolate chinks, cherry syrup and cannoli filling and you're done! Refrigerate until you're ready to serve, then serve with cannoli chips for dipping.

    Hot Chocolate Cannoli Dip

    Hot Chocolate Cannoli Dip

    January is a month for cozying up by a roaring fire, spending time inside, and relaxing after the chaos of the holidays.  We can't think of a better way to spend it than with this easy Hot Chocolate inspired cannoli dip!  

    Serve with powdered sugar cannoli chips, or for a take on spiced Mexican hot chocolate, our cinnamon chips, this is sure to make those chilly winter days a lot cozier and delicious.  

    Here is what you'll need

    1 15oz package of ricotta cheese (drained of excess whey for extra smooth dip)

    2 tbsp of cocoa powder (more on this later)

    3/4 cup of powdered sugar

    1 tsp of vanilla extract

    1 tbsp of chocolate syrup (optional)


    Hot Chocolate Cannoli Dip - Golden Cannoli Recipes


    For extra smooth dip drain the ricotta in a cheesecloth or clean dish towel overnight.  Removing that excess moisture will let your ricotta whip up fluffier than mixing it straight from the carton.  

    In a large bowl add ricotta, cocoa powder, vanilla, chocolate sauce, and powdered sugar.  Beat by hand to incorporate, then use a whisk or a hand mixer to whip into a smooth fluffy dip. Taste, and add more sugar or chocolate to taste. To get a more "hot chocolate flavor" add more chocolate syrup, for a more sophisticated dark chocolate flavor add more cocoa powder.  

    Dutch Processed or Natural Cocoa? Dutch processed is going to be darker in color, and a little more mellow and rich in flavor.  Natural cocoa is more common and probably what you have in your home already (Hershey's cocoa is natural) and is a more bitter paler version.  Both work in this recipe, use whichever appeals to you most! 

    Serve in a mug topped with marshmallows and or chocolate chips.  Chocolate ricotta dip can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container, reference the date on your ricotta for how long it can be kept.
