Holy Cannoli, this Cannoli Dip is out of this world. I served this at a cookout we held this past weekend and I was thrilled to see it was a huge hit. My husband was really bummed that there wasn’t leftovers and when I told him I’d be making it again this week for my blog he actually cheered. That’s a pretty good endorsement, right?
This dip is fantastic to serve at a party and it makes a great dessert, snack or appetizer. It’s everything you love about the sweet, cheesy filling of a cannoli turned into a dip! I served this with Stacy’s Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips at my party and it was a perfect combination, but it would also be great with fruit (especially strawberries), graham crackers or Nilla Wafers for dipping. I also made some simple cinnamon sugar crisps with a Flatout flatbread (pictured here) by just spraying the flatbread with cooking spray and sprinkling it with cinnamon and sugar before baking it for 8-10 minutes at 350.
This Cannoli Dip is so simple and fast to make, it keeps well in the fridge and it was such a crowd-pleaser that I think it’s going to be one of my go-to recipes for future potlucks and parties. Try it soon and make it yours!
