Cannoli Dip

Ricotta is one of my family's favorite ingredients. I made up the cannoli filling and broke up some ice cream waffle shells to use as "chips and dip"—it was an instant hit! It's also good served slightly warm. —Ann Marie Eberhart, Gig Harbor, Washington
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 10 min.
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 1 carton (15 ounces) whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped candied citron
  • 1 tablespoon grated lime zest
  • Mini ice cream sugar cones, optional
  • Miniature semisweet chocolate chips, optional


  • Beat together ricotta cheese, sugar, candied citron and lime zest. If desired, scoop ricotta mixture into cones and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Do not use a food processor to chop the citron—it could make it too fine, and its flavor is more intense with slightly larger bits.
