Cannoli Dip Ingredients

List of  Cannoli Dip main ingredients:

Chocolate Chips – I recommend using mini chocolate chips. Have a few extra on hand to sprinkle over the top of the finished dip for a festive look.

Cheese –There are two types of cheeses for this recipe, cream cheese, and ricotta cheese. The ricotta will need to be strained so as not to make the dip runny.

Powdered Sugar – Also known as confectioners sugar. I have used generic powdered sugar with great results. 

Dipping Cookies – There are many cookies you could use. This also makes a great fruit dip. Here are a few examples of dipping treats

  • Waffle cone broken into pieces
  • Pizzelle cookies
  • Vanilla Wafers
  • Cannoli shells broken into pieces
  • Strawberries or bananas
