We celebrated Kent’s Birthday on the 19th and 20th this year, two birthdays for the price of one. For Saturday’s party I decided Cannoli something was required on the menu. The Cannoli Pie and the Cannoli Dip were both huge hits last year I figured I needed to create a similar dish for 2017. Plus a dip in an edible bowl is so much easier to serve at a party.
Party Foods and Cottage Cheese Cannoli
Cannoli, something I had always heard about, yet never tried till last year year, Now it appears I cannot get enough of it. One of these days I am going to actually have to make true cannoli’s. A pie is amazing, the dip is inspiring but true cannoli’s well that is a challenge in my future I think.
Cannoli Dip in Edible Bowls
I am still sticking with my secret ingredient, really the Gay Lea blended cottage cheese adds the perfect flavour ( and really keeps it creamy and smooth). This year I thought I would serve the dip in waffle bowls, small individual servings that everyone could grab. I had the genius idea to use broken pieces as the spoon. In my infinite wisdom I made them the night before and refrigerated. (big mistake) Do not store the dip in a waffle cone in the fridge, soggy city. I had to remake everything.
- Blend together
- add in chocolate chips holding back a few for garnish
- add dip into waffle bowls
- add a few chips on top and a few pieces of the broken waffle cones
- serve immediately.
- If you wish to refrigerate for a bit, do not put in the waffle bowls, they will go soggy. Trust me tough life lesson
