- 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup ricotta cheese
- 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp finely grated orange zest
- 12 cannoli shells
- 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
Dip ends of cannoli shells into melted chocolate. Lay on parchment paper to dry.
In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on high speed, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Beat in ricotta, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and orange zest until well combined.
Place whipped cream filling into a piping bag and pipe mixture into shells. Lightly dust additional confectioners' sugar on top of cannoli (we forgot this step).
I think these were really yummy, but the filling was a little too thin. I think I may have added too much riccotta cheese. However, I did add more powdered sugar to try and thicken it, and it didn't seem to work. Still yummy though!
