Classic Cannoli Tips:

  • Everyone loves Chocolate! Melt down some of your favorite chocolate and dip the ends of the cannoli shells in prior to adding the filling. Use any of the remaining the melted chocolate and drizzle it across the shells.
  • Add some zest! Sprinkle in some orange or lemon zest to add a pleasant aroma and some subtle, bright, flavors to this Italian classic.
