Turn the heavenly tastes and textures of a cannoli into this sweet, creamy cannoli dip. Made with dark chocolate, honey, and ricotta cheese, this cannoli dip is a lighter version of a traditional cannoli filling, but has just as much rich and decadent flavor. Stir up this simple dip for an easy, sharable dessert or party snack, and top it off with your favorite cannoli add-ins, like chopped hazelnuts, pistachios, or sprinkles. Serve your cannoli dip with pizzelle cookies, waffle cones, or vanilla wafer cookies for a classic taste, or scoop it up with strawberries for more fresh flavor.
