The recipe for 12 cannoli.

You can buy pre-made cannoli shells.

For the filling you need:

  • 500 g of ricotta
  • 160 g of sugar
  • 50 g of dark chocolate flakes
  • 100 g of chopped pistachios
  • 1 envelope of vanillin
  • 10 g of cinnamon
  • 10 g of salt
  • 30 g of powdered sugar

Cooking steps:

  1. The ricotta cheese must be well-dried. Drain the cheese for 3-4 hours.
  2. Put the ricotta, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.
  3. Allow the mixture to stand for 20 minutes, so that the moisture of the cheese melts the sugar. Blend with a mixer until it becomes creamy, smooth and white. Now, add the chocolate flakes.
  4. Fill the cannoli with a pastry bag, smooth the two ends and dunk them in the chopped pistachios.
  5. Using a strainer, sprinkle the powdered sugar over the cannoli.

Buon appetito!
