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!

    Where would I find Mascarpone Cheese?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Usually by the cream cheese or ricotta.

    • JODI P

      It might also be in the deli with the fancier cheeses.

    • sann

      EXactly what I came here to say!

  6. FLmomma

    Stacys cinnamon & sugar pita chips are a quicker alternative that’s super delish too! We love strawberries with this dip as well! YUM!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes! Love those – great idea!

  7. Melanie

  8. Melanie

    I use waffle cones and break in pieces and sprinkle with powder sugar.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

    A friend brought this to a party and it is SO. GOOD. She also used broken up sugar cones to dip and YUM!! Thank you for sharing this, as I forgot to ask her for the recipe!!

  11. CJ

    You can make similar chips with soft flour tortillas. Cut then with a pizza cutter, spray with Pam and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake.

  12. Love from Munchkintime.com

    Oh boy! This easy dessert looks so good!!! Do you think it will taste as good with strawberries?!?

    • Lina D

      Yes! Maybe even a mix of broken waffle cones or cinnamon sugar pita chips plus the strawberries would be fun!

  13. Jennifer Gill

    I’m sure this would be great with graham cracker sticks

    • Lina D

      I agree! Yum

    • Dianna Ray

      Broken up waffle cones are the best things we’ve used with this dip 😊

  14. Ashley

    How much cream cheese? The ingredient list doesn’t actually list it.

    • Lina D

      Sorry – should read mascarpone in directions – fixed. Although you can use 8 oz cream cheese instead. Hope that helps!

  15. Dianna Ray

    My oldest daughter makes this and she uses box of waffle cones broke in pieces to dip. It’s so yummy 😊

    • Lina D

      Aw thanks Kayla!
