Tips for Cannoli Dip:
- Use Cannoli Shells to use this Cannoli Dip to fill the shells. We love Cannolis so we all love this this easy recipe.
- Some recipes call for heavy whipping cream. You definitely can add it, but it is not necessary.
- You can add in some orange zest even if you are not a huge orange fan. We love the flavor it gives to this dip.
- Adding some cinnamon is delicious in this dip.
- Try adding in some nuts – walnuts or pecans would add that extra crunch that would be great for this dip. I would recommend adding right before serving so that do not get soggy.
- If your cannoli dip isn’t think enough, you can add in whipped cream or whipped topping to thicken it up.
Can you make ahead of time?
This is the perfect dip to make ahead of time. I think it tastes better when I make it night before I am serving it. Just store in the refrigerator covered until you are ready to serve.
Once you are ready to serve, set out for about 30 minutes prior to serving. This way it softens some so you are able to easily dip you favorite items in the dip.
How to Store:
If you have leftovers, just refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight container for up to 5-7 days.
I like to set this out for my family for a snack before bedtime. Everyone enjoys it and it is the perfect bedtime snack.
