This sweet and creamy cannoli dip is made with ricotta, mascarpone, powdered sugar, chocolate chips, and vanilla extract for a rich and delicious dessert dip, that's perfect for serving up at a party!
- 15 oz whole milk ricotta cheese (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 8 oz mascarpone cheese (softened)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 TBS vanilla extract
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips (+ 2 TBS for serving)
Place four layers of paper towels out on a flat surface, and spread the ricotta over the top of the paper towels into a thin layer. (Leave a safe perimeter around the edges). Use four more layers of paper towels on top of the ricotta and press down to remove any excess moisture from the cheese. Repeat with a second round of paper towels as needed, if ricotta is still wet.
Scoop the ricotta off the paper towels, into a large bowl, or stand mixer (using a paddle attachment).
Add in the mascarpone, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Stir until combined.
Spoon the mixture into a bowl for serving, and sprinkle more mini chocolate chips over the top of the bowl.
Serve immediately with your favorite fruit, or cookies, or other dippers.
