This dessert is perfect for a small after dinner treat, especially with Italian food! And the best part? Each cup is only 63 calories! Woo hoo! This recipe was inspired by  Emily Bites who obviously has amazing taste in desserts.  I love quick and easy recipes like this. This mini cannolis recipe is so perfect for when you have a lot of preparing to do for dinner and don't feel like making a complicated dessert recipe. While I did not make this one I have made it since then and it is such an easy recipe. Plus who doesn't love a cheap dessert recipe? I already had most of the ingredients in my fridge.

INGREDIENTS

Frozen Mini Phyllo Shells (Or you can use baked Wonton Wrappers)
2 oz Mascarpone cheese (You can also use Cornstarch, ¼ cup and 1⅓ cup Milk instead – mixed well)
⅔ cup Ricotta cheese (15 oz size)
3 Tablespoon powdered sugar (any brand will work)
½ teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup mini chocolate chips, divided (you will need some for the topping)

DIRECTIONS

Thaw out your phyllo shells on the counter for about 10 minutes. You don't want your shells to be frozen!
Combine your Marscapone, Ricotta, Powdered Sugar, Vanilla, and Cinnamon with a mixer in a medium sized bowl. Then using a spoon, put in about HALF of your mini Chocolate Chips to mixture.
Spoon your filling in each of your phyllo shells (this mixture will fill up to 15), and then sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips. And then enjoy!

  1. I use to eat cannolis every now and then when we would order them to ship to our home years ago and I just loved them. I was just thinking about how good they were and now I found this recipe to try to make them, Thanks so much for sharing and can’t wait to give them a try.
