For the Cannoli Dip
- 1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
- 8 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
Suggestions For Serving
- 1 package small chocolate chip cookies
- 1 package of waffle cones cookies
- 1 whole cone for garnish for the dip
Place the ricotta, cream cheese, and powdered sugar into a mixing bowl.
Beat the mixture with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until smooth. (3-5 minutes.)
Add the vanilla to the mixture, whipping for another 30 seconds.
Before proceeding, taste the dip. If you would like the dip to be sweeter, add in more powdered sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time (up to 8 tablespoons).
Add the mini chocolate chips to the mixture and stir with a spatula. Be sure to keep some of the mini chocolate chips for garnishing when serving.
Put a waffle cone in the center of the dip for additional garnish.
Serve the dip immediately along with broken waffle cones and/or small chocolate chip cookies.
On the off chance there is any dip left over, store it in a container with a lid and place in the refrigerator.
