Cannoli Dip r2

 Ingredients List

  • 15oz Ricotta Cheese (strained)
  • 8oz Mascarpone Cheese
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar (maybe more, depending on personal preference!)
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk (optional. I added this as a substitute for the 1cup heavy cream that I omitted in an attempt to be healthier! I think the recipe would’ve been fine without any cream or milk too.)
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (but let’s be honest, we’ll all dump in at least 1 cup worth!)


Strain the Ricotta cheese into a mixing bowl. I used a combination of cheesecloth and paper towels to soak up as much moisture as possible. Coffee filters may work instead of a cheesecloth as well. Basically anything able to hold a lump of ricotta, and be closed/twisted as to squeeze the water out! It doesn’t need to be perfect, but the stiffer/drier the ricotta, the thicker the dip. We’re going for Cannoli consistency.
Using a spatula, combine the strained ricotta and mascarpone cheese, pressing out any lumps to make a smooth mixture.
Mix in the powdered sugar 1/3cup at a time (feel free to taste test and add more if needed!). The mixture should taste cheesy with a hint of sweetness.
Add in the optional milk little by little while stirring, making sure to keep a fairly thick consistency.
Fold in the chocolate chips (do another taste test!) and voila! Done!
