I really love cannolis, but didn’t feel like buying or making the shells for them. So, I decided to do a dip instead with the filling. This is a great dessert dip. Serve it with graham crackers (regular or chocolate) or strawberries. Or, you can just do what I did, and eat it with a spoon! Enjoy!
1 (15 oz.) container ricotta
3 tablespoons marscapone cheese, softened (you could also use cream cheese)
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons bourbon (optional)
½ bag mini chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients well with a mixer. Keep chilled in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
