Mini "Cannoli" Sandwiches Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. orange zest
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup  plus 1 Tbsp. miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 30 NILLA Wafers
  • 1 pkg.  (4 oz.) white baking chocolate

Instructions

  • Beat  first 4 ingredients with mixer until blended. Stir in 1 Tbsp. chocolate chips; spoon onto 15 wafers. Cover with remaining wafers to make 15 sandwiches.
  • Place  in single layer in waxed paper-lined pan. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Melt  white chocolate as directed on package. Dip sandwiches halfway into melted chocolate, then in remaining chocolate chips. Return to prepared pan.
  • Refrigerate  30 min. or until chocolate coating is firm.

Recipe Tips

NoteLike traditional cannoli, these are best served when the wafers are still crisp. If making these tasty treats more than 6 hours before serving, prepare the ricotta filling as directed then refrigerate until ready to spread onto the wafers an hour or so before serving.

SubstituteSubstitute 3/4 cup multi-colored or chocolate sprinkles, or chopped pistachios for the mini chocolate chips used for dipping.

Size WiseSweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.
