Best Cannoli Dip

Saturday, July 4, 2020
This is truly the Best Cannoli Dip I ever tasted its light creamy and its 100 times easier to make than the famous Italian cannoli pastry!


The Ricotta and Mascarpone cheese with the addition of whipped heavy cream make this over the top smooth and addicting.


The suggestions are endless to scoop this up with you will see below, just pick out what you like to use.


The true cannoli is an Italian famous pastry that has a tubular fried crust then filled with this style delectable cheese filling inside.


The dip is a true dead on the flavor of cannoli if you follow all the steps I use with ingredients and everyone is totally in love with this who tastes it.


If you want the easiest copycat flavor of that fabulous Italian pastry, this is it and will be the hit at every party or family get-togethers.


We love cannoli and I make a fabulous Cannoli Pie Cannoli Mousse, Cannoli Ice Cream, Cannoli Tarts, and of course the original Filled Cannoli Pastries.


Start making copies of the recipe, I promise you everyone will ask you for this one!

Tips and Garnish Ideas



  1. To get the true taste of cannoli, there is a little splash of Marsala wine on whatever you decide to use for scooping this delicious confection with.
  2. Also my a little sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar on the cones, pizzelle if using and I try to use any kinds of cookies with a little sprinkle of cinnamon, this is totally optional.
  3. If you prefer a thicker dip you can increase the powdered sugar, this isn't super sweet and I have even cut the powdered sugar to 1/4 cup due to all the dipping suggestions are sweet enough.
  4. Anything you like cookie wise makes a great scooper for this dip we love Italian Pizzelle cookies!
  5. Strawberries make the best taste for fruits to use.
  6. Keep this in the refrigerator until ready to use or any extra dip.
  7. I also like to keep this on in an ice bowl if it will stay out long for a party.
  8. This dip can also be used for a CAKE FILLING!!!
