Best Cannoli Ice Cream Recipe

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

I had always wanted to try making this myself but thought it was going to be way to rich and pretty much phony in flavor when it comes to a favorite dessert in our house. I waited patiently to see what the critics in my Italian household would say and the verdict was wow this is awesome! The garnish made it even a step up from just the cannoli filling taste of this ice cream and we love the addition of the brushed marsala sugar cones. Hope you and your family love this recipe as much as we do,  it's really smooth and a totally creamy confection I will make often! Being from the best area for Italian food #UticaNewYork this one is a winner for sure! #Cannolirules #UpstateNewYork #BestItalianDesserts!

Cannoli Ice Cream
1 cup milk
15 ounce container Ricotta whole milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup heavy cream placed in the freezer while preparing the base for at least 1/2 hour

Optional garnish: Sugar cone brushed with 1 tablespoon melted butter and 1/2 teaspoon marsala wine

In a small saucepan heat just until all is blended together, Ricotta, whole milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon and vanilla. Place the heavy cream into the warmed mixture. Place all of this in the freezer for one hour or overnight in a covered container.

Put the mixture in the ice cream maker to package instructions. 5 minutes before its done at the chopped cookies and mini chocolate chips. Freeze 2 hours before serving. For garnish melt butter and stir in marsala wine. Brush sugar cones with this mixture and break off pieces, place on top of ice cream and serve.
