Chocolate Chip Canolli Cones-5

Dessert is one of my most favorite times of day!!! Have you had cannoli? I used to think that I could only get this luscious and amazing Italian dessert from the bakery. It is the perfect combination of a crunchy shell surrounding a sweet ricotta cheese and cream filling. I am so thrilled that I can make these right at home! When I am craving something sweet these are my go too Italian treat fix.

The ice cream cones are an easy to find shell for the decadent ricotta filling. Just to take the waffle cones over the top, we dip them in melted chocolate and roll them in mini chocolate chips. Can you have too much chocolate? I think not!

There is still time to make these sweet treats for Valentine’s Day! They are so amazing and addicting. You will be craving them all the time.
