Cannoli Bites

Posted on: July 24, 2011

This dessert is very delicious and takes about five minutes. As a bonus, it’s a nice, cool dessert for a hot day!

1 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 t vanilla extract
4 T. powdered sugar plus more if using for a decorative topping
1 T. heavy cream (I used milk)
1/8 t. cinnamon
1 t. fresh orange zest (I omitted)
2 T. mini chocolate chips
30 mini fillo cups (2 boxes)

Whisk together ricotta, vanilla, powdered sugar, heavy cream, and cinnamon. Fold in orange zest and chocolate chips. Using a teaspoon, fill the mini fillo cups. Sprinkle the fillo cups with additional powdered sugar, if desired. Serve immediately.

To prevent the cups from becoming soggy if not serving immediately, refrigerate the filling until ready to serve.
