Cannoli Dip tastes just like the rich, creamy filling of a cannoli without all of the hassle. A couple of ingredients and 5 minutes are all you need to whip up this perfect party pleaser.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta
  • 8 ounce mascarpone or cream cheese, at room temperature and strained
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • graham crackers, strawberries, waffle cones, etc. for serving


  1. In a large bowl, add ricotta, mascarpone, and powdered sugar. Beat with a mixer on medium-high speed until smooth, approximately 3-5 minutes. Add vanilla extract and cinnamon and continue beating for 30 more seconds.
  2. Taste the dip, and add up to 1/2 cup of additional powdered sugar as desired.
  3. Gently fold chocolate chips into the dip. Sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top of the dip.
  4. Serve dip immediately with dippers of your choice. Strawberries, graham crackers, waffle cones, and pizzelle cookies are great options!

  • If your ricotta is a bit watery, you can strain it. Line a colander with a cheesecloth and strain the ricotta by pressing it with a rubber spatula until most of the liquid has drained. Paper towels can also be used in place of the cheesecloth.
