When it comes to dessert, you can't beat a custom cannoli! I love this approach because it's fun and interactive — the kids absolutely love it. This is my six-year-old son Roman's favorite dessert.
Technique tip: To provide a more professional-looking presentation, use a piping bag with a star tip to pipe the cream into the cannolis.
Swap option: You can use plain instead of impastata ricotta.
For the cream filling:1.
In a mixing bowl, blend the ricotta impastata with the sugar.2.
Add the vanilla and orange extracts and cinnamon; mix well.3.
Fold in the mini chocolate chips.4.
Scoop ricotta filling into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip.
For the cannoli station:
Fill each cannoli shell with cream filling.
Arrange the remaining add-on ingredients in separate bowls for dipping and garnishing so that people can customize their cannoli!
