Buongiorno tutti!

Today we are whipping up that deliiicious ricotta filling found in cannoli and ricotta cake.  Another popular way to incorporate this filling is by presenting it as a dip that you can dip cookies into. (We could eat it with a spoon too!) 

What you'll need:
  • 15 oz. whole milk ricotta cheese, strained
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
Step 1: In your mixer (with whisk attachment) start mixing whipping cream for a few minutes.  Set this cream aside while you mix the other ingredients.
Step 2: Next, combine ricotta cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla in this same mixing bowl and mix on medium for about 1 minute.
Step 3: Add the whipped cream and chocolate chips. and mix lightly to combine ingredients.
Step 4: Chill for at least 2 hours before filling cannoli shells or presenting as dip.

Buon appetito ragazzi!
