CHOCOLATE DIPPED CANNOLI BALLS
½ cup of ricotta cheese
¼ cup cream cheese
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder- or sweetener of choice. Can substitute 2-3 tablespoons of coconut sugar, honey, maple syrup, or monk fruit
1-2 tsp of vanilla
1 tsp almond extract and 1 tsp orange extract-optional
Almond milk to thin
Mini chocolate chips
Dark chocolate pieces for melting- I use at least 85-90% cocoa
You can also make a cherry cannoli version by adding cut up cherries into the dough.
Combine all ingredients except for the chocolate and chips. You can use a hand mixer if you prefer. Add mini chips. Refrigerate until the consistency is hard enough to roll into balls. Place in freezer.
Melt dark chocolate, dip the balls into the chocolate and return back to the freezer.
- another option is to make these in “cannoli pop” form. After you roll them into balls, place a sucker stick into each ball and place in freezer.
