Tora Cannoli 3

Torah Cannoli

Happy Hanukkah, all! As a born and raised Presbyterian, I’m trying to expand my horizons and discover food holidays that exist beyond my American and Christian calendars. Why? Because I firmly believe that you can never have enough reasons to celebrate food! So, I’m starting my adventure with a baby step into a cousin religion- Judaism. And despite the fact that I happen to be a WASP, I don’t live under a rock; so I got it when I saw these cannoli that look like Torah scrolls. And can I just say how excited I am that we’re finally adding cannoli to our repertoire!

While starting with a store bought cannoli shell may technically be cheating, it makes this recipe so easy- all you need to worry about it the filling. Oh, the filling! It centers around a ricotta base (which makes this a health food, right?) and has mini chocolate chips throughout. Yasss! Once you decorate the ends with your own personal favorite garnish, be it chocolate or colorful sprinkles, you’d better believe that this one knockout dessert.

Cannoli's
 1 Package (18 count) Cannoli Wafer Rolls
 ¼ cup Melted Chocolate or Marshmallow Fluff (for "glue")
 2 cups Ricotta Cheese
 ¾ cup Confectioners' Sugar
 1 tsp Vanilla
 ½ tsp Lemon or Orange Zest (optional)
 ¼ cup Mini Chocolate Chips
Garnish
 Sprinkles
 Mini Chocolate Chips
 Confectioners' Sugar

Cannoli's
1

Pipe the melted chocolate or marshmallow fluff (whichever you're using) in a thin line onto half of the cannoli shells. Pair each with an untouched cannoli, gluing them together so they resemble Torah scrolls. In a large bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, vanilla, citrus zest (if using), and chocolate chips. Stir in the confectioners' sugar. Scrape into a piping bag and pipe into each end of the cannoli shells.

Garnish and Freeze
2

Set filled cannoli on a plate with a deep rim and sprinkle your favorite garnish over the exposed end of the filling. Garnish with additional confectioners' sugar and serve immediately or freeze immediately to keep the cannoli shells from getting soggy. Remove frozen cannoli from the freezer about 2 hours before serving.
