Cannoli Dip FAQ’s
What is cannoli dip made of?
Cannoli dip is usually made with the same ingredients as a cannoli filling. These ingredients include ricotta cheese, confectioners’ sugar, mascarpone cheese and vanilla extract. You can stir in chocolate chips too.
Do you eat a cannoli warm or cold?
Typically a cannoli is served chilled.
Do you have to strain the ricotta for cannoli filling?
The moisture in ricotta cheese can vary by brands. If the brand you are using looks especially wet, then go ahead and strain it first. I recommend using a whole fat ricotta and not a lowfat one because there will be more moisture in a lowfat ricotta cheese.
