Mocha Cannoli

Chocolate-Dipped Mocha Cannoli

For some reason, as I typed that title, I started singing it to the tune of Copacabana a la Barry Manilow.
"Mocha, Mocha Cannooooooo-liiiii" 

GUYS. Seriously. I cannot handle the ruffles, the chocolate, the crunch. These chocolate-dipped mocha cannoli are everything you want in a dessert all rolled up in one sweet little package.

And here's the kicker...they look fancy enough for a dinner party, but because we're using pre-made shells, they're easily whipped up for a weeknight dinner.

To my Italian friends, no...these are not traditional, BUT the filling is made with ricotta, not cream cheese. Also, there's a good bit of orange zest in there for brightness and as a nod to the dried fruit in the traditional filling.

That chocolate shell is NO JOKE. The cannoli shells are coated inside AND outside. Oh yeah.

"Her name was Mocha, she was a cannolo...
