Cannoli Dip

This creamy Cannoli Dip will be the hit at your next party or gathering!

Serves: 10-12

Ingredients

For the Dip:

  • 8 oz. container Mascarpone Cheese
  • 15 oz. container Whole Milk Ricotta
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Step 3:

    Fold in chocolate chips.

  • Step 4:

    Cover and chill in refrigerator.

  • Step 5:

    Roll out dough onto a cutting board, and cut pie crusts into triangles using a pizza cutter or knife. Place on a cookie sheet.

  • Step 7:

    Dust with cinnamon & sugar. Serve with dip.

Additional Notes

Adapted from allrecipes.com

Tips:
  • Make sure to use whole milk ricotta so the dip will have a thick, creamy consistency.
  • Cream cheese can be substituted for the Mascarpone cheese, if desired.
  • Cannoli Dip isn’t meant to be super sweet, so taste and adjust sugar to your taste.
  • It tastes best after being chilled in the fridge while making the “chips”.

We LOVED this dip!

Such a creative idea that didn’t take much time at all. I enjoyed using pieces of pie crusts as dippers, but you could also use graham crackers, pieces of waffle cone, fried egg roll wrappers, and I think strawberries would be yummy also! Enjoy!

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing Hip2Save.com in classic view.

If you prefer to view Hip2Save.com in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
